Well I s'pose I should mention I designed one of those things...



Never really was as happy with the thing as I was with the nixie clock. I made the mistake here of aligning the tubes instead of the digits in the tubes, so the clock looks a bit ghetto.

Base is the same size/shape as the nixie clock, tubes are Soviet IV-6 VFDs. Unfortunately the design uses a chip which is now obsolete to drive the VFDs, so I'll have to redesign the clock.

I have enough IV-6's to build 6 clocks - if I can sell 5 for the same $80 kit/$100 complete price, I might be persuaded to do the work.

BOARDS ARE HERE!



Gonna build Domon's clock tonight, taking pictures of the process, and make an assembly manual for anyone buying kits.

Still waiting on wall adapters, and finding stainless 4-40 machine screws locally has been surprisingly difficult.

Find 4 more buyers and I'll design the VFD clock. Or I could sell you the POS prototype above...

I'll need 3 more people to make it worthwhile, and probably a couple of months to get it done. I'm going on vacation in a few weeks and need to get the nixie stuff all done before doing any other projects.

I've found a guy interested in duing a gas swap, who believes it's possible to achieve a good blue color. If that works out, maybe I'll talk you into a modified nixie clock instead of a VFD.
