With his engineer background was all he had before becoming enamored by nixie tubes. not unlike myself, he pursued as much info as he could be it text or what little existed on the internet before needing the help of those willing to share their knowledge. He search, gathered, and learned about the equipment needed, taught himself how to work glass and used lathe, and to process, clean, and use vacuum system. He's very open with sharing his process, his success, his failures, Questions, and solutions. After the podcast, please checkout his youtube channel for his latest projects and designs.
Thank you for listening to the Taming Lightning Podcast. I’d like to thank Dalibor Farny for taking the time to record for the podcast, as well for sharing with me knowledge on reading and equipment recommendations. Like most episodes this is an introduction, and hope to have him on again to talk about some of his recent projects. I'd like to thank Pittsburgh Glass Center for supporting me as a place of research and inspiration, also Plasma Art Alliance where I have access to the well of knowledge and connects me to some amazing and supportive people.
Feel free to share, comment, and subscribe. As always Be Safe, Be Healthy, and Be Strong, and I’ll See you next time!
