    Since most neon signs are used in bars, go to the older drinking establishments in the area. Many times the neon tubes stop working and the owners take the sign down and put them in the basement or attic. The glass tubes then get broken. That's where I got my first couple of sign transformers, for free. So until you ask around you never know.

    There is a good Tesla Coil build article in the April issue of Nuts & Volts magazine. It is on the website right now. It has parts list, schematics and everything. Check it out.
