Nixie Clocks - Retro-Cool-Fun

Nixie Clock gallery

Great link to a gallery of "Nixie Clocks". What's a Nixie you ask? They are neon-filled numeric displays, also known as 'numicators', with 10 cathodes shaped like numbers. Think of it like an old transistor tube with number-shaped neon lights inside. They were popular in equipment in the late 60s and early 70s.

I'll put this project in burner for a future build. They would make a great gift....

Great source for nixie tubes
