This is a store featuring my homemade electronic novelty clocks, made using obsolete electronic tubes.
This a fully assembled product (not a kit), made in the USA.
Homemade six-digit Nixie clock, made using IN-14 (Soviet) nixie tubes, underlit with RGB LEDs, which can change color by pressing a button. It has a calendar, rudimentary alarm (buzzer) and can be programmed to turn the display on & off at preset times. Can also run in 24 hours (military) time. Nixie tubes were once used in lab equipment in the 1960's, before the use of led displays. The tubes are filled with neon, which lights around the wire frame numbers.
All component parts are replaceable/repairable. Battery backup using a nine-volt battery. Can be set for 120VAC (standard U.S. service) or 240VAC (some other countries). I will ship worldwide, but I cannot be responsible for problems or delays caused by customs in your country. A youtube clip of it running: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F92-GnRRxEo
Now has a GPS option so time & date are extracted from a built-in GPS module and will set automatically. See an example at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S08MFrFA0B8
Note If your clock has battery backup, in order to start from this point you should:
Please refer to the youtube link for illustration: 2nd on/off times setup demo
Note: The clock will display 12:00 AM to start (1:00 AM if in 24HR mode) so if the present time is afternoon, you will need to advance the time past 12:00 in order to reach the PM hours (if in 12 HR mode) else the preset on/off times may be reversed. I.E.: if the present time is 8:00 PM, you need to advance PAST 8:00 once, then stop at 8:00. If GPS equipped, time will set automatically.

I became interested in electronics at age ten, after having seen the Apollo program and realizing the integrated circuits (chips) used in NASA's space program were produced by Texas instruments and surplus chips were sold at the local radio shack !
