    Hey, I recently made one my self! I found if you twist off the top of the cathode case. you can slip on a 1/4" clear hose to keep the actual cathode tube from rattling around in its case! It works perfectly!!! no more broken cathodes.

    I might have to try that. I broke my cathode last weekend due to excessive rattling.

    Nice shot tcb, cheers for the sharingness :)

    I recently aquired a cathode last week and housed my cathode in an acrylic cylinder which fitted perfectly attached the switch to the bottom which also works well .

    I ended up buying a rechargeable 12v battery that really isn't that big. works pretty darn good for whatever
