    Nixie Tube Clock No.2

    Well now you said I can ask questions........i have mocked up something in copper heating oil pipe, but you keep using the word brass, where are you buying brass pipe in Ireland? I have looked and can’t really find much.I was thinking of using copper, polishing it, and then apply a coat of lacquer to keep the tarnish away.thoughts??

    Thanks for all that. I stumbled across nixie’s about 2 years ago and they just stayed in the back of my mind. Then about a year later I saw your design and thought that it looked good. When researching I really liked the IN-18’s but who wouldn’t. So I brought 6 of the zm1020 after seeing they had longer life spans than the small IN-1.My design will be quite similar to yours, unless I get fed up with making 6 holders and threading wire though copper tube!! but will post pictures on Facebook when I finish.thanks for your help.
