Lantern Clock by hellboy
here is my first Instructable, Its a beautiful Nixie Lantern clock, A little steam punk and a bit Victorian, made up of mostly of found components
I tend to communicate better when there is something to show so please look at the images and tags, they sometimes will hold more info than the body of text.
Here is a parts list….
-large slab of walnut 2″ thick by 36″ long and 12″ wide
-large slab of maple 1.5″ thick by 30″ long and 12″ wide, both found on eBay
-2″ diameter clear acrylic tubing .125″ wall about 12″ long, any plastic store and eBay.
-an assortment of gears and gauge faces / bezels, knobs and metal bits,
– A nixie kit, I highly recommend a seller on ebay who goes under the name…petes_kits, here is a link… petes_kits, http://shop.ebay.com/petes_kits/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562
he has to my knowledge the only nixie prototypers board out there that gives the experimenter options of screw terminals, solder pads and designated nixie patterned mounts for leads, not to mention he always answers and is there to help you out.
-you will need some basic electronic skills
-a multimeter with a continuity function (prefer an audible function).
-3 Blue leds
-A mill and lathe for custom parts, machining skills are very helpful
-lots of brass and aluminum
-all sorts of hardware and locktite
-12 conductor 28AWG ribbon cable
-9VAC transformer, wall wart
-assortment of gears, shafts and collars
and finally… lots of imagination…..
Wall Clock or Wall Art?
Like all children, I was fascinated by things and their mechanisms, why they move and what makes them move in a certain way. And when I could not figure out by myself I was frustrated and wanted to know the truth as soon as possible. This is how I decided to remove the back of a wall clock and see what was inside. I was simply;y stunned seeing so many gears and little pieces that seemed to work with a lot of ease. Well, I still remember what I saw then and this memory was brought back to my mind by this special Wall arrangement called Gear Wall Art with Clock.It is indeed wall art, as it was created to be a beautiful wall accessory and it looks really nice, I admit. But this artistic accessory also integrates a wall clock. It looks like one of Leonardo da Vincis works and still very modern, too. It is an industrial piece of work and is made of metal. However, it has a hand painted finish, which makes it look great. It works with one AA battery and you can purchase it for $149.99 from World Market web site.
