So I was walking past the stock rack at the shop the other day, and saw this 1/2" diameter rod of Translucent G-10 sitting there. A light bulb moment occurred, let's make a Self Lighting Gas Lantern with this stuff.
I machined it all up, inserted the vial, then ran to the bathroom with the lights off to check it out.
Yep, just as I thought, not only do you get the light from the viewing holes, but the G-10 itself glows as well:)
They were tough to photograph, and are quite more impressive in person.

3mm * 23mm SLGV.
#10-32 stainless steel socket set screw drilled thru for additional vial viewing.
