A Nixie Clock

Posted <2023-10-26 Thu 10:49> by Aaron S. Jackson.

I spent ages this month hand wiring a nixie clock. For some reason I decided that wirewrapping over 100 connections would be easier than designing a circuit board. Anyway, I'm happy with the results.

Some photos of the creation.

The case was designed and laser cut at the hackspace using 3mm plywood. I then sprayed on primer and black paint - finish turned out alright I think! To make the feet, I turned some brass rods on the mini lathe at the hackspace and then added an angle to the flat part, which makes the clock sort of sit like a dog.
