To be honest, this is the second clock kit I purchased. I fried the first one with my ham-handed soldering skills. After reviewing a few how-to website instructions on soldering and purchasing some new solder and flux, my handiwork gained some compliments from some more tech-inclined friends. The clock functioned right away, as advertised. I'm now incorporating the finished kit into a somewhat ornate desk clock, and plan to share pictures online.
I'm planning to incorporate this clock into a steampunk idea I have. I've assembled it, and it took much less time than I'd expected. Unfortunately, only the seconds-counter seems to work. I strongly suspect it's my sloppy soldering that is the cause, and I'm preparing now to clean up my work. In any case, If I can't make this one work, I'll buy another because the seller was very accommodating and sent me the color LEDs I wanted. (Hence the high scores for shipping and communication.) Documentation is so-so: the tinyurl website was extremely helpful, but the printed address was a bit illegible because underlining it obscured the "q" and made it look like an "a".
Anyway once my little project is complete, I'll post photos somewhere and give kudos to Apple Mountain.
I have not build this unit yet din't have the time to.but i buy for to build.when i do it will be nice.i have other from onther type of kits that i did not built yet but will get to them since i moved over 1 year ago in the basement got clean it will take time to do these kits.since this is small i will do this soon.i tend to buy these and will build them.but when i have the chance.your kits.are very nice and i do like electronics.i will buy more but the money is short.so i will buy a little at a time.i do have power source for any kits.thanks albert.
