Nixie tube clock

Thursday, March 29, 2007




Remember this? Here is the clock I was working on. Looks great. I especially love the way the numbers glow in and out as the numbers count up. Nixie tubes rock. This project (with a litte teaching from the father-in-law) got me to be quite a good soldering king. The parts were extremely small and took some practicing. This isn't like fixing an amp. Let me know what you think.

The hubcap ball

This is a sculpture I made a while back. It happened after buying a boatload of old hubcaps at Brimfield flea market. I love reusing stuff as you know. You just can't play with it.
