***These chessboards take a lot of time and effort to construct. It will take around 8-10 weeks for your board to arrive*** The first and only Nixie-powered chessboard in the world. No plugs! Induction coils power the pieces right through the board. No assembly required, works right out of the box.Finally! After many months and redesigns our V1.5 boards are ready. Featuring printed inductors created using special PCB processing and a choice of through-hole or surface mounted parts for the piece PCBs (the main board is through hole). Note that for now, the ready-built boards will still use the 1.5 design with surface mounted components.This is the fully constructed chessboard option. You’ll be buying a fully built chessboard, with round IN-7 nixies and brass fittings. You’ll be able to simply unbox the game and plug it in.The symbols used to depict each piece may vary from the photograph depending on the availability of nixies. These symbol nixie tubes haven't been made since 1991 and are now in short supply. Once they're gone, that's it. Game over.

Fraudulent seller. Ordered in April. Never delivered. Lied to multiple times.
Response from Anthony Adams
I know it's been a long time, the labels were printed ready to send it out but I've been held up again. Sorry you feel I have lied but I've just been trying to get through a difficult time.

I love this clock, completely what I expected. Thank you for this perfect communication and help to get it on time and to set it once received :)

Took a while to arrive, but came packed well and feels good quality. The provided instructions were difficult to read (text too small) but the shop owner sent them via PDF very quickly and gave a few pointers on how to set it, as it's a bit tricky at first. Overall I'm very pleased. I may change the supplied USB cable to a fabric braided one which will go better with the overall look as I have it on a shelf where the wire can be seen. Overall. Highly recommended.

I've assembled quite a few clocks (nixie and otherwise), and this has been, by far, the most interesting one. This is not an easy project - there are many opportunities for mistakes (all my fault, I will admit)! Putting all the pieces together also takes a large amount of time, which is part of the challenge. However, the result is a truly unique timepiece that looks great and that actually works.
If you are up for some challenge, I would definitely recommend this kit.
