Kit includes everything shown in the photos

The NixieStar Clock is an ‘analog’ style Nixie timepiece using IN-13 tubes. The case is made out of solid cherry that has been CNC cut. The kit does assume some ability to work with wood: mostly trimming, sanding, and gluing. It will need to have an appropriate lacquer applied. The clock includes a real time clock with a super cap to keep time during power loss.

The NixieStar is reasonably simple to assemble. It does have two surface-mount components with SOIC packages. The lead spacing is .05″ which is approx half the distance of a standard DIP package. With a steady hand, these chips are are not hard to place.

The wood supplied with the complete kit comes bare to allow for your own custom painting.
