Description

Sorry, I sold this clock on eBay. If you like to order it, please allow 4-6weeks to manufacture!

This is one of the largest piece I made so far, of old nixie-era technology encapsulated in elegant hand-made all see-thru rich optical clarity grade enclosure. You won't get disappointed! This is a very substantial piece weighing over 3 lbs. Clock sports pluggable wonderfully crafted NOS Z566M 30-mm digit German nixies in pristine condition. High quality gold-plated receptacles from Mill-Max. This clock has very heavy 1/4-inch thick cast acrylic tube foot-long, 4.0-inch OD, and 1/2-inch thick indestructible polycarbonate sides that I hand-machined on my Grizzly mill. The pushbuttons are with 1/8" acrylic pusher rods. Clock utilizes extremely accurate RTC DS3231 from Maxim Integrated guaranteeing the accuracy of 2 seconds per year! This enclosure requires many man-hours of milling, cutting, reaming, de-burring, and polishing. It is modeled after my original IN-8 clock published on successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014. You won't have to refer to "cheat sheet" for setting and customizing of this clock - very easy setup with LCD display onboard! New, unique solution for adjusting nixie brightness and/or blue LED brightness - single-turn potentiometer affecting either one or both brightness setting in manual brightness control mode. This clock displays absolutely flawless cross-fading over programmable length of time - it took me few weeks to perfect the fading in and out of the digits.

The video of the setup will be produced shortly and published on YouTube

12V switching power supply is included.

This clock is simply loaded with features:
- reverse polarity protection (standard feature on all my nixie clocks)
- 3V lithium battery backup lasting up to 2 years with no mains power. No cheap super cap, but battery
- 12 or 24-hr time format with neon lamp indicator for PM
- fully auto-dimmable multiplexed nixie tube operation extending the lifetime of nixies, and reducing the glare at night
- user choice of Auto- or Manual Brightness Control with "manual mode LED indicator"
- programmable leading zero blanking: either "_1:25:59" or "01:25:59"
- colon lamps with independent control of upper and lower neon lamps
- programmable "steady on", "steady off", or "blinking" colon lamps
- programmable digit change modes (instant flip, cross-fade, slot-machine)
- programmable transition time for (cross-fading or spinner) from 100ms to 700ms in 7 steps
- colon lamps with independent lower/upper lamp control (colon for time display, lower dot for date display)
- alarm clock with orange LED indicator, programmable 20-unit sound level, and always gradually raising sound level
- snooze programmable from 4 to 30 minutes; alarm lasting up to 1 hour
- programmable date display with independent bottom neon lamp in colons; programmable date format US, CA, EU
- date 0 - 4 times/minute, starting at programmable second of minute, and displayed for 1 to 5 seconds
- cathode anti-poison exercise routine (Yes/No) at programmable time with utilization of 100% of manufacturer nominal current
- nixies OFF period (Yes/No) with programmable OFF- and ON-time to extend the lamps lifetime (when you are asleep or away for work)
- separate nixies OFF period for the weekend and for the week days
- date displayed on demand at any time with a touch of "Up" button
- alarm time displayed on demand at any time with a touch of "Snooze" button
- nixie display revived on demand during "Nixies OFF" time period

Clock dimension: roughly 12" x 4.5" x 5"; weight about 4lbs

    A very unique clock, and a great shop to work with.

    First of all, the clock itself looks and functions great. The design is, of course, as you see in the pictures, but as these things go definitely looks even better in person. The clock is quite fully featured (again, as described), with an alarm, numerous display options, and even dual power jacks whether you prefer to have the cord coming out the side or the back. (Great if you want to place the clock on a narrow shelf.)

    Jerzy offered me the choice between a standard Blue Dream Alternative clock or the Wi-Fi version which still needed a little work to finish. I opted for the latter, and received plenty of updates along the way as the build and software was finished.

    I would definitely recommend this shop and any of the creations within.
