One of my friends is making these really cool neon signs using some of my lenses.

These are sized to fit in anyone’s basement or small garage/pole barn.

None of the designs is taller than 36” or wider than 50”.

The cans are laser cut out of 16 gauge steel and TIG/MIG welded before being powder coated.

The faces are laser cut out of sheets of acrylic plastic.

And the neon is all hand bent by a master neon bender.

They are fully wired using all new materials and ready to hang.

He can make a sign using any of my lenses (or any other lenses you may have).

You can pick your brand - and have full control on the design and colors.

I will have about a half dozen of these at my booth at Columbus featuring various Oil Company logos.

Stop by and see them in person.

Later . . .

Jim

Pricing has not been set yet.

My friend is still assembling these for Columbus.

He will have his costs figured out by the show and retail pricing set at that time.

This sign features Jenney.

As shown with my Jenney Auto Oils lens - but you could use my Jenney Solvenized lens if you wanted to.

. . . IOMA . . .

Note how the Black and Red in the logo are 'proud' from the surface of the sign.

Randy,

I don't make those lenses - but I'm sure my friend can do that for you.

He can get the necessary lens from another manufacturer - or you can supply it.

Stop and see us at Columbus and we'll discuss it.

Later . . .

This is my personal favorite.

So much so that I'm having one built for my collection.

I'll know prices when I get to Columbus.

So feel free to call me Friday at the show - or if you're there, stop by.
