Unique Steampunk Resistance Box Nixie Clock Comprehensive Lighting Effects

A unique steampunk style nixie `Mentalpiece` clock based on a vintage Philip Harris decade resistance box, this clock has some interesting functions controlled by the original controls in addition to its own remote controlled lighting. The clock uses Russian IN-16 Nixies, an elegant slender design and has blue underlit tubes. The front panel has been set away from the main wooden case using a transparent acrylic spacer, allowing the internal LED`s to cast a glow under and around the clock. Clock internals are mounted on a smoked perspex insert which looks dark in daylight but glows nicely in the dark. Clock settings and alarm are controlled by the row of push buttons on the front panel You can see a video of the clock in action on my Lumenixie Nixie clock website. Unique Steampunk Resistance Box Nixie Clock – Comprehensive Lighting Effects. The colour and intensity of these and the upper illuminated lumitron tubes (bubble resin and wire coil) are controlled by a remote, which provides many colour effects both static and dynamic, 7 colour cycling, fading etc. LED`s in the resistor tubes either end provide a blue and/or flickering amber effect, adjusted and dimmed by the original dials on the front. These also switch on or dim the row of old radio valves at the back which are lit from underneath – these can be changed at will for other valves which fit the sockets! Clock settings and alarm are controlled by the row of push buttons on the front panel which also has a red alarm indicator LED. I`ve been building these clocks for a few years now as a hobby. I love the challenge of mixing old and new technology. Hours of work goes in to each one – finding a suitable case to restore and. Modify, machining and fitting parts, wiring etc. As the name suggests this clock looks great on a mantlepiece – especially if fronting a mirror! Runs off standard 12vdc 500ma wall adaptor. You can see a video of the clock in action on my Lumenixie Nixie clock website. Technical details from PV electronics website: Clock based on the well proven PV Electronics `Sixnix` kit.
