The neon - By MikeD
Most cities have a sign maker of some kind capable
of bending the neon you need for the robot.
Take these two provided images to your local
vendor and see if they can make it.
Neon Support Pattern
The larger image shows the bends
needed in the neon to get the proper number of lines and shapes. The second
cut-a-way shows an average neon support system that defines the curves that
the lines must follow.
Where the power terminals end up is up to you
but I found that straight back gave me ample access to the terminals
I use 10mm neon some use 8mm, I think 10 looks
My local guy did it for $135 which I thought
was very reasonable.
