Elektor Six Digit Nixie Clock (150189-71)

Ref : Elektor. 

       : Incredible (I mean REALLY) CRT and Nixie clocks.     

I built the clock and made one stupid mistake. I failed to ensure the nixies were snugly seated on the back board before soldering them. They are a little bit cock eyed. To fix them would require some really serious custom building of esoteric soldering hardware and the risk of damaging the nixies.

"Perfection is the Enemy of Good Enough. " we concluded.
