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!

Here's an old radio that was gutted I found at a pawn shop for $10. I did a little sanding, paint, and added a few goodies to it. I used a kit from PV Electronics. I made my own headers and extending wire for the tubes to place them where I needed them. I also added an arduino with an LED panel that makes patterns that change based on sound.
