ELECTROCUTION!!!!!! DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDED! Why in the world would you want to use any kind of metal for a neon manifold? Glass has so many advantages, easier to clean, safer, and with proper care, mounting, will last virtually forever. Do yourself ans those who love and need you a huge favor, go glass. I have been a bender-pumper for over 48 years, and can remember when the metal manifold was just a passing fad. Regardless of what supposedly good things you have been told about metal, don't touch it with a ten foot wooden stick!
