Hello

That's my first post on this forum, even if I'm registered since many month, so let's say it will be my way to introduce myself. :)

First, I'm a noob with electronics and I learnt to use a iron solder or a multimeter only two years ago.
But I fell in love with nixie and dekatron clocks, so I had to try to do something with my humble skills.

So, my first clock (built last summer) is mixing a PV "Dink" clock kit with Z5660M tubes, Dekatron OG4 DoHickie kit and a cheap DS1302 led clock, with a vintage industrial time recorder tweaked as its housing.

For a first project, I'm quite pleased with the result, even if I never managed to synchronise the leds with the nixie, unfortunately, but it seems to be impossible... :pinch:

Hi Gilor, welcome to the forums!

That is a very nice looking clock. Excellent choice of housing, it looks very industrial and sort of steampunk, which I like. As for the LEDs, nothing is impossible but it might get a bit complicated since you would be trying to make 2 unrelated kits talk to each other...

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.
