Forgive me for pointing something (maybe) obvious out. From his pictures, it appears that he has the tubes (and other supporting devices) mounted on the wrong side of the board. It wouldn't matter with the backlights and neons, but the tubes would have the numbers all wrong. Am I missing something? Maybe you added an option to the board for this and I just haven't read about it.
Hey Jim, yep that is new. All of the boards come right side up or upside down, depending on what you want to see from the top of the clock. I also laid it out again a bit more intelligently so that nothing sticks up too far. Makes it much easier to find a case for it...
I don't expect you to send these to me for free like you offered. I appreciate the offer but you can't be responsible for my clumsiness. I think I will order another clock and you can ship them together.
