Sign Parts Oddities

Welcome... to the World of Sign Parts Oddities!
Through the years, we have received numerous photos of odd looking sign parts from Customers and novice neon lovers. These photos usually come to us in the attempt to either find the part or to understand it's history, origin and use.

It wasn't until recently that we began to save these photos with the intent to display them here.

If you have any details about any parts shown, please email us with the info and we will be happy to add it to the item.

If you have an unusual sign part that you would like us to include, please email it/them to us. High resolution jpeg photos are preferred, but email us whatever you have.
