    Default Swihart Rocking logo Coca Cola clock

    I have a SWIHART PRODUCTS ELWOOD INDIANA rocking logo Coca Cola neon clock. The mechanism that links the motor to the logo is missing. Does anyone have any information or a picture of this?? A picture of the neon transformer would also be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The size and type of transformer will depend on the width and length of the neon tubing, as well as if it's neon or argon/mercury. There are a couple of other companies that sell transformers (I've used Tech-22 and West Coast Custom Designs), and each will list the maximum width and length for each gas that a particular transformer will power, as well as the dimension, to ensure it will fit inside the case.

    Avoid over-powering the neon; an electronic transformer has the advantage of self-adjusting to the load while a "core and coil" does not. And, of course, ensure that the case is properly grounded.
