Subject: feed thru insulators
i unpotted my neons and am gathering materials to construct new housings.
so far i only have some .25" plexiglass (lucite) i plan on using plastic
L-bar and nylon nuts&bolts along with acrylic cement to secure the lucite
pieces together. so far that seems to be no problem to me. but i am
having a problem finding feed-thru insulators for the HV output. the only
place i found that sells them is Daburn, but they don't sell them in
quantities less than 10. I've seen them at the nebraska surplus web site,
but they are too large. i was looking in the range of 1-2". where can i
get these from? if i can't, are there any other comparable methods?
Since you are using acrylic for the case, just drill a 1/4" hole in each end
and mount brass bolts for the connection terminals.
