I made a nice water pump system and it seemed  wrong to use panel lights  with it. So I went VFD…


Fairly Simple design but I did add screw mounts for the display itself and a form fitting pocket…

I even added an RGB  led indicator

Not a bad fit..

The hard part was cutting the panel. I was going to use the plasma cutter but I opted for an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel. I figured there would be less warping of the thin plate.

Luckily the whole control panel drops out….


Guess I need more water….
