Yeah, I've posted that picture on a few other forums as well!

The original source is here:

50A of heater current!


Oh, I have read that this person's next project is a copy of a Tektronix TEK570 curve tracer, and is looking for several valves and offering Siemens rotary switches in exchange.

I've always wanted a nixie clock, but I've never seen them for sale in the UK apart from odd pairs on Ebay. Oh, and valves scare me...

Default Nixie clocks

I made one in '68 when TTL was new! The only tubes are the 6 nixies and a glass tubed 1MHz crystal.
I think I still have it amongst my junk. Must sort it out and "oil it". Will post a pic.
