It has been sometime (yet again) since I produced a plasma device of Steampunkesque qualities. This was made to mark my youngest siblings 40th Birthday.

Nice. Does not look like a neon filling. Argon maybe?

Thank you.
I'd say argon, neon and a little bit of xenon or krypton.

Because I did not fill the glass vessel. I bought it as a commercial unit...removed the tacky black plastic it was covered in and remodelled it as you see now.
I bought a stack of these...this is what it started out as.

Nice, that end would be a good place for
an armature winding.

Ah I do love a bit of plasma, me!

And a nice bit of Oak, i think, too. The horizontal presentation is also most refreshing!  Smiley

Very nice work Sir.

HP

Just how many of those things did you buy? They are all gone... and at not really a knockdown price. Perhaps the
gold synthesizer is working now?

 ...  i've said too much...  Sad

PS Happy New Year! 
1819 is almost upon us!

Why thankyou sir!

I actually ended up buying about 6 of them as a job lot from a guy on eBay. The outboxes were damaged but displays were all working.  Paid £25 for the lot of 6.
