RESTORATION OF VINTAGE NEON PHARMACY SIGNAGE 

I purchased this vintage neon sign at an auction in Massachusetts. It must have been made in the 1950's. It was covered with dirt and several neon tubes were broken. My goal was to replace all the neon with the original color - Turquoise- and clean it up but not repaint it.  I believe that unless the paint loss really detracts from the sign, it it is best to leave the paint alone. 

The neon bending style of the tubes is not commonly used today.  The way the bends drop to the PK housings (the glass holes where the neon electrodes go into) were really sweet and I re-created them exactly.  It took more time but the final effect is true to the period. 

Aside from the external components, all the wiring and transformers were replaced.

The neon is pumped (that is removing the air from the tubes, bombarding it with 25,000 volts to remove any impurities and neon or argon injected into the tubes) This pictures shows the new neon I bent being "burnt in" on the pumping table.
