NixieStar Clock is a ‘analog’ style nixie clock using either IN-13 tubes (16in) or IN-9 tubes (14). The sizes are the approximate diameter of the clock with the case. The case is made out of solid cherry that has been CNC cut. It does assume some ability to work with wood. Mostly trimming, sanding & gluing. It will need to have an appropriate lacquer applied. The clock includes a real time clock with a super cap to keep time during power loss.
The NixieStar is reasonable easy to assemble. It does have 2 surface mount components with TSOP packages. The lead spacing is .05″ with is 1/2 the distance of your standard dip package. With a steady hand and a smaller sip (not tiny) these chips are are not hard to place.
The face supplied with the case option is blank and without a painting.
To get the correct resistors if you are purchasing a with no tubes. please indicate in the notes whether you are intending to use IN-9 or IN13 tubes.
