Nixie Clock

Despite having a degree in electronic engineering it’s been a long, long time since I last picked up a soldering iron in earnest. So when a mass order of nixie tube clocks was proposed on a forum that I frequent, I decided to jump in and buy one in kit form.

I’m pleased to report that my soldering skills are still present, despite a lack of decent soldering equipment. Sorry about the quality of the photos, but for best effect they were taken with the lights off and there was nothing of the right height to rest the camera on:

You can’t beat the glow of some retro tech, except with the glow of knowing you built it yourself 😉
