Hello everyone, this is my first post here.
I fall in love with nixie clocks, and I would like to have my own customized clock.
problem I'm a noob in electronics! :S

I did a lot of research on the net, to finaly chose RTF Z566M which are really beautifull and affordable tubes. (by the way if people are interested in those tubes, they are sold at neocrotec website).

The thing is that, at the begining, I wanted to build a nixie with my z566m tubes plugged to this pre-assembled board : nixieclock.co.uk/ (check nixie clock 2)
But finally, I had a reply from the guy telling me that he was no longuer selling those kit, as he has retiered from the business.

So I'm a bit annoyed, as I already have the tubes, and nobody is selling 4-kit-tubes anymore. I found some 6-tubes kit, but for some reason I found them really to big, and I defeniltly prefer the 4 ones.
I am really a newby in that area, and I don't know how to program or weld by myself... I didn't expect it was such complicated to find a pre-assembled kit nowaday.

I'm really diapointed about this, it's hard when you are not hand skilled like me :)
That's why I come toward you to get some advice from as you are much more familiar with nixies than me. ;)

Thank you very much for your answer and your time.
I really hope to find a great solution with youguys.

Sincerely

Jonathan

PS: sorry for my bad english. I¯m a french newby

Hi there, i have a z566m clock, but with six digits. I can tell you its definetely worth it, i just love looking at the fast change of the seconds digits, the minutes are just too slow for me :D I got the clock from here ( www.pvelectronics.co.uk/index.php?main_p...th=18&products_id=61 ) if you ask him, he will asseble the clock for you for about 15 GBP.

Thank you for the help, but I have already seen this watch.
I don't like it very much, it's not enough vintage to my test. I don't need led and stuff like that.

All I need is a simple nixie like this one : obrazki.elektroda.net/83_1263848491.jpg that's it.

But thanks for the proposal.
