Can someone recommend a good nixie tube tester, or a good how-to on building one.

Get a plasma globe, and hold it near the tubes. If they glow, they are 95% sure to be good. When I get home I will demonstrate it with a video.

I think also a van der Graff generator or Tesla coil will also work, if you have one of those lying about. Perhaps a taser would work too.

Or you can make one out of one of those electric fly swats, because messing around with HV is always fun:



I wrote up a 'how to' on neonixie .
