Yes. The brick I sent is a 115V brick. You should be able to tell the power, neutral, and ground from the wire colors.

Peace,
dave

Looks beautiful,

One day I hope too own a He-Ne, but I was put off the open ends and potential to give my self a shock :(

Is it possible to build like wooden enclosure for each end? so that the clips run in and cannot be seen or touched, with just the wires coming out?

Just in case my post confused anyone..

Black = Hot (power)
White = Neutral (power)
Green = Earth ground

Absolutely! People have used PVC pipes, wood, acrylic, etc to build housings that will protect the laser and the user while still allowing you to see what you want (plasma, beam, or both)

I placed my first tube in a PVC pipe I painted black, it worked (still does)

It does look great,

I think I might draw up a few plans and see what I can work out for a portable/desk top He-Ne.

Is that a green He-Ne?

Got the parts together for 3 more smaller ones, minus one power supply.:bowdown:
