I am new to this forum and this is my first post. The other day I stumbled upon a project on instructables.com and it happened to be a nixie clock. Long story short, I quickly became a fan of this awesome technology.
Now, I am here looking for advice on building my own nixie clock. I am currently studying electrical engineering and i have a good knowledge of electronics. My plan is to build my own clock from the ground up or with the parts that I can find.
I would pretty much like to build a clock exactly like the IV-12 from nixiekits.eu. I like the look of the VFD tubes and the full rgb LEDs. If you could give me some advice on how to get started it would be much appreciated. Info as to where to get circuit boards, schematics, and tubes.I really enjoy DIY projects, but keep in mind I am a poor college student!
The most pcb manufacturer offers you, when ordering a bigger batch of course, a colour option for the solder mask.
Normally you can get standard green, blue, red, black, white and yellow (yellow looks also cool).
