Excellent Project - Well Documented , a lot of fun to build . Quite a conversation piece Tony was extremely helpful in answering questions and offering guidance . Would highly recommend that people get one of these as the tubes have been out of production since the 70's! Jay Marcucci KC2YSK

Excellent customer service from this shop owner. I had some random questions which he answered very quickly and honestly so that I could make my purchase decision. The parcel arrived quickly too. My husband hasn't put the clock together yet so can't comment on that, but all the necessary pieces appear to be there. Thank you :)

Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend at Christmas. This is an amazing piece of kit (not put it together yet - but looking forward to doing so). Seller was very quick to answer all of my questions (there were many) and shipping was super fast, especially when ordered so close to Christmas. Cannot fault seller at all. Thank you for your extremely prompt service.

there are no instructions for assembly, parts are poorly machined components not soldered onto the PCB, I 2 of contact for electronics assembly, therefore additional cost. the folks at Lazermad are overwhelmed and can not explain. Their photo montage plans do not correspond to the products sent (different printed circuit board) 1 transistor is not good, and I do not know how to set the clock to the correct time, no Buttons pushins. I regret this purchase, which for me is to throw money.

Response from Anthony Adams

Hi, We have not received any contact from you and would be happy to help with any problems you have. No parts are pre-assembled as it's a kit requiring full assembly not just a 'solder the last bits on and use' project. Case parts need sanding and polishing to be used. Operating instructions are on our website and are identical to the IN-14 version sold by Thinkgeek.
