Were you able to find the stuffs you need? If you are not in a hurry for stuffs, I recommend checking out LEDs and electronics on AliExpress.com, tons of cheap and good stuffs. Be sure to buy from a reliable source.
There are a few sellers on EBay and Amazon, you have to search for "neon rope light" as NeonFlex may be a trademark of a company.You want to have as short cutting length as possible as you don't want to have much leftovers, these are 12VDC type.This one has a cutting length of 1".https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071D758BP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_81krzb6F2T135These are similar items.https://www.ebay.com/itm/182394815935 https://www.ebay.com/itm/351989797060
Cool! That's great, when I have a chance to do it I will send you pictures. Thanks again for all of your replies.
Very cool use of recycled material! I assume the giant switch is just for show? Love the retro/aged look.
The acrylic sheets are 48"x96" so I think it would be perfect. The 15mm sheet is so heavy so I might have to strengthen the base and the wheels. Thanks.
Very cool, I will use it to store my acrylic sheets, and small pieces. Great idea!
Thank you, I hope that you will have a chance to build one for your kids.
Hi mrsmerwin,Thank you very much for your comment and glad that you liked it.For different sizes of coins but still 3 coins, you can manage by pulling/pushing the bottom face of the ejector (on the base piece) up or down depending on the thickness of the coin, and the side walls for different diameters. For other pieces beside the base, you can fill the holes and re-cut it according to the diameter.However, making 4 or more columns will be a bit more complicated but still doable. Basically you will have to fill the base, center column, and coin slot and re-cut all of the elements. There's a Fusion 360 class available here, it is not difficult to learn. I think within a few days you should be able to manage it.One item to note, you will need quite accurate 3D printer to do the Dime as th...see more »Hi mrsmerwin,Thank you very much for your comment and glad that you liked it.For different sizes of coins but still 3 coins, you can manage by pulling/pushing the bottom face of the ejector (on the base piece) up or down depending on the thickness of the coin, and the side walls for different diameters.

Very cool! Looks like the bed is floating.I did something similar to my bed but only on one side, I used blue LED connected to a little infrared sensor with a timer (like the sensor on the spot light that you can buy at a hardware store). So when I step of the bed at night to go to the toilet the floor would glow blue (not to disturb the wife), and once I am back in bed it would fade out.

Thank you, I hope that you will have time to make something to show us.
I see, I love math too, one of my favorite subject besides physics, but that was looooong time ago. I am glad that you kept them instead of tossing them. You can probably use them as scales on an articulated wooden fish or scaled armor (for a kid's costume).
Thank you for your comment. I hope that your customers don't know that you are using their business cards to make your creation ;-)

For Ultra Micro, I got it for $5.20/m direct from factory.
I am using Nedar's flex.http://www.nedar.cn/en-us/product/LVLEDStripLight/...Their newest product, Ultra Micro Flex is super small, the size is only 9x16mm, 12V, with and amazing cutting length of 25mm. It is very difficult to find this size with a short cutting length.With such a short cutting length, you can really make a nice and small neon sign. Here are some of my latest ones. The "i" in Tiger and height of "E" in Bottle is 100mm tall.

Thanks Jon, I was aiming for a 3D looking skullI with sunken eye sockets and nostrals. I will try it again and this time I will extrude the floor of the patterns below the skull up so that the chamfer touches the edge and I will try slicing with PrintStudio to see if I could get a better result.Thanks again for your suggestions.
The print came out a bit rough even on high resolution export to MakerBot Replicator 2. I didn't have any sealing wax so I tested it out on a bar of soap, Looks cool but some soap got stuck in the smaller features as expected.
A bit too ambitious, the details came out a bit too small, wax will probably get stuck in there.
A bit too ambitious, the details came out a bit too small, plastic will probably get stuck in there. I tried it out on a bar of soap still looks cool but bits and pieces of soap got stuck in the smaller details of the design.
