The Pillars of Time- A Steampunk Nixie Clock and my 10th Instructable ;)

Made from pure Brass and Coppertubes.

Step 1: Things We Need

Many Brass Parts and Ornaments from Candleholder and Lamps

14 ( 12 ) Same Brass Tulips from Candleholders

White Leds or another Colouer you like

Popplar Wood for the Case and Wood Colour. I used dark walnut

10 k Poti´s

Bakelite Rotary Knob

Nixie Kit from PVElectronics here

6 Nixie Tubes IN-8. You must look on Ebay

IN-8 Nixie Socket here

Many thin Cables

Nitric Acid and Sulfur Liver for Colouring

Brass Gears from a Clock

Small Loudspeaker ( if you want ) instead of the Buzzer

Please note . I know that it's hard to get all these parts , and it should only be an incentive and inspiration to be at the same time to build your own Nixie Clock. A little imagination and you can build amazing Things :)
