OMG I want one.

As far as fine grid v. coarse grid. I find that my favorite Nixie tubes are always the ones that I just bought. So right now that would be the ZM1000. Here is a little video I couldn't resist making!

(BTW Ian, embedding videos doesn't seem to work?)

Fine Grid Vs Coarse Grid

This has always been a debatable point amongst Nixie tube users and basically it boils down to personal preference. In saying this coarse grid Nixie tubes are far more easily read at a distance compared to the fine grid versions which are better at closer distances.
A lot depends on the format of the grids used, tubes such as the XN-11, GNP-7A have a very good grid format whereas the IN-14 is a poor example. One of the best grids is the horizontal grid which gives the best clarity in viewing and the ZM1232 is a good example of this.



But in the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Scott, that is a nice tube. I have never seen / used tubes like that, though would love to.

I have thin grid IN-14 tubes, and I have made IN-14 clocks, I really like the thin grid tubes better... but.. robust grids like IN-14 have a quality all their own. Makes them look stronger some how - more Russian I think.

Did the levitating clock ship yet? I soo wanted one last year.

The latest update has the kits shipping this weekend and ready made to follow. The feature creep got in and threw a few delays into the mix :)

Looking forward to having a go at this one!

Cheers,

I have a kit that I'm part way through assembling, So far so good, PSU and GPS receiver seem to be doing what they should. More building next week if Xmas stuff doesn't get too in the way :)

Cheers,
Robin.
