Was wondering how has or planed on giving away Nixie Clocks as presents for Christmas.

This year I'm giving two clocks.. one to my parents, the other to my in-laws.

www.nixie.ai/product/omnixie2018/

one for B-5441 tubes
and the other one for NL841 tubes.

I had the tubes, so I purchased them without tubes.
though feel slightly bad because I didn't make them... they are AMAZING clocks..

Giving them away as presents lets me keep building new clocks.. and not become that weird clock guy... with tons of clocks .. :( (My wife thinks I'm that guy already).

and after putting tubes in them.. wow.. I LOVE NL841 and B-5441 tubes .. they are soo beautiful .. well all Nixies are special.. but they sure look nice in those clocks.

hey,

they are fine presents - but for the right prople. i have seen some who was totally crazy about it ... and some not.
this year i want to sell 3 of them as retro futuristic styled Sankyos for christmas. sadly i just finished 1 of them, so the other get back to boxes for sometimes to have some time to solder around :)

at last: yapp, for enthusiastics are they great gifts.

regards, Sven

I agree with Sven. They're great gifts for the right person. I've given 3 clocks as gifts. One to my boss from the electronics shop he owned, and one to each of two friends. I think my boss appreciated it the most.

Thank god I don't build cuckoo clocks. The neighbors would complain every midnight!

I built a Sven for my Brother in-law for Christmas a few years back. he really likes it .. it was a great Christmas present.

So my parents and my in-laws both really liked their clocks. I think it turned out to be great Christmas presents.

My mom/dad were sort of fighting over if they liked the clock talking or not. My mom liked it.. my dad.. not so much.. LOL...
