Re: neon rings around secondary?

You have received several responses from myself and others, from time to time the list seems to not deliver all of the messages to certain people, or deliver them late (this has been my observation, I get responses to queries that I never saw, or the question arrives after the answers). Don't worry though, they all say the same thing as Wyatt, so your not missing much! Good luck!

Well, I was really thinking along the lines of powering them separately. However, what I think I will do is make a couple of faux coil forms and put them in the cage with the coil and have the neon on them...

Thanks for your response, only one I've gotten.

Are you talking about using the coils field to power the neon rings, like is commonly done with phosphor bulbs? Or, are trying to devise a way to power them seperately( i.e. dedicated trans. or whatever)? I would think that running any sort of wires in this area would turn into a nightmare unless you were willing to cover the secondary with perhaps,a sort of false coilform.I would also think that you would have to shield the crap out of anything associated with the neon tubes.Have to admit though it would make for a very cool effect.
