    Nixie clock VI kit

    Build the clock yourself ! The Nixie clock kit includes the pc boards, transformer and components to populate the board. IN-4 Nixie tubes included. This is a relatively difficult project as there is some skill required to build this clock, i.e. the tubes must be set carefully in the socket pins and the RGB leds must be set up and soldered very carefully in order to obtain the full effect as the clock is shown in the photos. This is a challenging build but will also be very rewarding to the builder who invests the time and care to build it. Backer will have the option of the kit with switching power supply & AC adapter cord (recommended for wall mounting), or with pc board transformer & standard power supply.
