So, Blogging has done what I hoped, and inspired me to crack on with my Nixie Tube clock after a few month stagnation.. I’ve got the main board almost finished, after spending ages staring at wires of many colours, trying to figure out what the hell I’d done..

Designing and assembling PCBs is a hell of a lot easier than wiring copper stripboard!!

I’ve also got the main schematic done, rather than keeping it all in my head.

So, heres as far as I’ve got:

And the schematic:Nixie Tube Clock v0_1

So I now need to test the board, start writing the code, build the Transistor switch board, and shell out for some Nixie tubes….
