So now I'm also going to have to keep an eye out for old desktop calculators and Hunter timer modules (just like we used in grad school) too?  Oh, great.  :roll:

Actually, the thing I liked about Nixies, and that doesn't really get mentioned much, is that the filaments are arranged within each tube in a back to front way such that there is a 3-d aspect to a numerical display.

yes, of the currently produced pedals by Electro-Harmonix,
I so far designed the (tubed):
 "Hot Tubes" (new one), the "Tube Zipper",the "Wiggler",
and the (solid-state) : "Worm" and "Pulsar" (new one).

I did not design that nixie-tube clock, nor built it, nor did
the software or java for it: Its only a clone!
(but I like it...).

Ah, that's valve technology for you - three minutes slow!  :roll:

Actually, I have two digital frequency meters in my workshop; one seven-segment LED, the other using Nixies. Guess which one I prefer?
