Clocking in with the ITS1A display

I finally finished a project that I have been working on for a while; trying to coax a Soviet ITS1A thyratron display into some sort of clock design. I assembled a final working version and did a little write-up about it, linked below.

Though I had some boards professionally made, I doubt I will ever be able to sell a kit version of this clock, due to the lack of supply for the ITS1A tube it uses. I sold a very small number of tubeless kits to other people at $60 each, but somehow I suspect there is not a vast array of people with ITS1A tubes laying about that are waiting to be wrapped in some sort of clock.

That is awesome. I wish I still had my NEO8000's - I bet with some current limiting you could get those to work with your invention :laugh:

Wow...I have a few of these tubes and would love to put together a few of these clocks....do you have any more 'kits' you're willing to part with?

Cheers,

Nick

Well, I have received several requests over email from people with ITS1A tubes that want to buy a kit, so it looks like there is enough interest to justify another batch of PCB's. The kits should be ready in a month or two and will sell for $60, the same price as the first batch. I will contact you when they are ready so you can buy one if you want.

I too would be interested in a kit. What are those smaller end view tubes you are using??

OK, Never mind, It's and MTX90. I went to your site. Very nice little tube and a very nice little kit. Very interested in purchasing one
