The GWH II is just going to have a slight delay because I'm adding Voltarc into the mix, and booting out the EGL Veritas in place for Samsung. I will also be adding two lamps of Tri 15 & 13mm on a 60ma as well but that will probably be for next month.

Is this test going to mirror the original or showing something else? Besides new LEDs I mean.

The only thing different this time is all the light sources will be on shared power, Neon & LED unless their proprietary or 24 volt. The individual compartments are channels like the others, no more sectioned cabinet.

I'm going to do what I do best and throw a wrench in the Project Tighty Whitey works.

I'm going to add in a "What If" Scenario to the data. I'm not going to make it a on going part of the project but I'm going to add a 12mm FMS Tri-Phosphor lamp in the same channel with 1019 Housings. Let's see what a neon lamp can do in a small tight space channel where we can utilize the maximum 360 deg light.

Any predictions? We have about 200 FC in the new GWH II 4" wide channel test which has not come out yet. Anyone? Start a pool?

      I'd like to make a HUGE Announcement that we have brought in a large quantity of REAL U.L. Neon Glass Housings for all your Neon Sign & Lighting Projects, and will have these on hand on a regular basis. 
       
      As most of you may or may not know, there has been a huge shortage of the availability of Glass Neon Housings for Neon....and what has been available has been a lot of Chinese Fake UL Marked (Embossed on the glass) Neon Housings in the market for some time. 
       
      They Claim a UL mark, BUT...they aren't listed.     .i.e. SSI Glass Housings have no valid listing with fake embossed UL Emblem
       
      The biggest complaint for some time has been the threads are terrible and it made tightening at times near to impossible.  The other bad aspect was that the glass walls were too thin, and with just a little bit of heat they were cracking or a incidental drop bump might cause them to crack and break prematurely.
       
      NOW IN STOCK - Westrim U.L. Listed #100, #200, #200P, #300 Neon Glass Housings
       
       

       
      Also, it's bad news if you're a Wholesale Shop or Custom Sign Shop integrating these knock-offs into your signs.  It's passing along a fake listed product and should something happen like a "fire" I can't imagine Insurance Companies will be too happy about the use of a "knock-off" 
       
      I've done my best in the past to look for and supply vintage housings that were listed for the Neon Community and help with keeping that art going with Porcelain or older glass housings which we still do have plenty of (#100's & #300's).  But now we'll be able to bring in those hard to get components to keep those awesome Neon Open Faced Channel Letters and Wall Signs going without running into shortages of components or options.
       
      You can Purchase these from our store or contact us to place an order or inquiry (858) 880-1400  |  orders@thesignsyndicate.com
