Sorry about your finger, Matt that really sucks. As far as soldiering the 
wire to the plate your assumptions are correct. Incidentely Franceformer is 
one of the most desirable of all neons...

As far as the pitch goes i have done the same thing, nothing hurts worse. I 
was heating some once in a pan waiting for it to melt. I pressed on the 
surface and my finger went thru. When I pulled it out it was covered in 
pitch, nothing helps.


Good luck.
