    Very excited to have picked up this very old neon counter advertising. The owner inherited it from his father. He had never plugged it in. I haven't cracked it open yet but the cloth wrapped cord is frayed. Assuming I rewire the plug how reliable are these ancient transformers?

    More reliable then modern ones. Just look for a black tar like substance or oil leaking out of it.

    Not neon, LED. Unfortunately this looks to be the way of the future. Still a pretty cool sign and I got it for $145

    Think you're right about LED signs going forward. I picked up this California Coors Light one not too long ago. You can see the difference between a real neon on the left to the LED sign on the right.

    yeah, the new led neon is cheap and "easy". Neon is freaking expensive if made in the us... I get it but man neon has that lovely glow

    I have another neon sign on the way. nothing special just an Ebay "ARCADE"

    I'm trying to add one every month or so.

    I find led signs too bright

    I only have two, Mopar related and they are somewhat on the dim side but then again they are sold for home use not commercial.

    O I get it. I have over 60 legit neon signs in my home (check my history) but it is what it is without having custom signs made at this point.

    I finished a neon project in my basement and have these signs as extras that don’t have a spot to hang. Offering them for sale to anyone in the Philadelphia area who would have room to hang in their game room.

    I ended up with only room to hang 17!

    Nice! I'd be interested in the Troegs sign depending on price. I am near Allentown, PA. If you're going to the show in May I could get it there too.

    Damn wish I was closer. Any PBR signs get snatched up quickly and for big bucks around here

    Been a while since I've checked in this thread, had ~130 new posts, lots of cool neons added. We almost made it the three new pages without an LED sign... (lol)

    I recently added a Neon to a location I'm operating some pins at, there was a noticeable increase in quarters in coin boxes after it went up.

    IMG_6619 (resized).JPG

    I made a cardboard template and used it to cut out the vinyl the location had up over the windows.

    Anyone know of a reputable shop in the Los Angeles area that can create a custom neon sign for me?

    Seems like everything I am finding is for the new LED "neon" signs, which I don't want.. I know it'll be more expensive, but I would much rather have the old school glass tubes. Just can't beat that glow..

    Need a little help lost my glow on a sign during a tournament. Thought a coil smoked on a game but later realized a sign was no longer on. Here is the transformer. Tried to contact neon tech to buy a replacement but no luck getting ahold of them.

    Does this one from amazon look like it would work as a replacement?

    Yes, that one will work.
