      PK HOUSINGS
       
      PK, or Neon P-K Housings are harder and harder to find these days with no major Neon Manufacturer still producing the Metal Shroud portion of a PK Housing.  Westrim??  Nope....Transco?  Nope....Allanson?  Nope...
       
       In fact, it's been nearly impossible to find New complete PK Housings. 
       
      The only way in the last couple of years if you had a Neon Project for a client has been to find existing stock from a sign company that has had some just sitting on a old dusty shelf somewhere, or possibly a sign supplier who didn't even know they had any, and with LEDs flooding the market it's doubtful a supplier rep even knows what they are/were, and that dusty case they do have with all those strange metal & glass components was possibly spare parts for some old delivery truck their company use to have from the 90's???   
       
      Think of how many have just been straight thrown out in the garbage
       
      Well, not every Neon wall project calls for #200, #300 Housings, the difficult Masters Technologies Boots and Sleeving System.  If you want a Neon attached to on a wall for a clean look & without a raceway, YES...it IS still possible!!!
       
      We've been sitting on these for some time, sorry for the late public announcement

      Hello All,
       
      I am trying to replace an obsolete neon transformer on a bar light and cannot seem to find anyone who can confirm what modern transformer will work as the proper replacement. That's why I came here to the experts!
       
      I've attached a photo of the old indoor gas tube transformer.
      I believe it says it's an Actown Model No. FG 3851.
      PRIM 120 Volts 60 Hz 270VA
      SEC 9,000 Volts 30 MA
      Secondary Mid-Point Grounded
       
      I believe Actown was bought by Franceformer years ago.
       
      Can anyone offer any insight on what a solid replacement transformer for a bar neon would be?
       
      Any info. anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks!
