Nixie Tube Clock

Digital displays are so passé, ancient Russian Tech is back in fashion!

Sometimes I like to make something just because, and it turned out to look absolutely amazing.

After being inspired by a similar looking table lamp, I wanted a unique way of telling the time.

Nixie tubes run on very high voltages, so this one was a little outside the ELV safety realm.

This project used a custom PCB and 3D printing. It was assembled in a way that I did not cut any holes in the antique, so I can put it back together in it’s original glory should the need arise – I do not like destroying history.

Too much wiring, too much heatshrink tubing, I have square eyes now
