Mini Time machine
Following on from the larger Time Machine clocks, I was asked to make a smaller one. This started out as an unwanted Victorian Mantle clock and made a great starting point for me to work with. Inside are 4 Polish Dolam LC531 Nixie tubes, they have a very industrial quality to them and illuminate well. With it being a Time Machine, it has to have a local space time readout!
Some of the brass gearing on the RHS was repurposed from an old WWII Aircraft, part of a mechanical Autopilot system. The central part above the tubes is part of the valve section from an old Trumpet, all nealty fitted inside. At the very top of the clock; the tall brass fineal is actually a hidden control. You rotate it to alter the speed of the dekatron tube that is located right in the middle of the original clock face.
