DIY Gallery


I have seen many Nixie clocks, and taken inspiration from other people's ideas and designs. It is interesting and also useful to see what other people come up with, to help you make your own clocks, and see how others use Nixie tubes and other display devices - Panaplex - Crt - VFD, it doesn't just have to be Neon. It is very much within the hobbyist realm and this page is for sharing and swapping notes! There are some exceptionally creative folks out there and should rightly have their creations on display!

My latest build. After a months on and off its finally finished. IN18 - OG4's. The recorder still smells of aviation fuel! Looks amazing the way everything reflects off the orange paint.

This a Russian multimeter from 1983 and is now housing 4 Russian IN12's. The measurement leads need to be used to set/adjust the time.

A truly wonderful idea for an upcycled clock. Mike has used Fruit Machine drums, controlled by steppers that then illuminate to show the time.
