Nixie Chessboard DIY Kit, round IN-7 Nixies Includ...
|Grand Total:||US$ 577 (delivery+cost)|
|Size||Not fixed sizes|
Note: This is a DIY construction kit, not a finished board (the board is fairly simple to build, but you will still need to be confident soldering small parts). This kit will include all 32 nixie displays needed for assembly.
The first and only Nixie-powered chessboard in the world.
No plugs! Induction coils power the pieces right through the board.
A cool DIY project!
We've finally managed to secure a *small* quantity of IN-7 nixies and I've organised a few extra V1.5 printed coil PCBs to make use of them. This is the last time we expect the original version of the chessboard as seen in the 2012 videos to be available (though the electronics inside are newer). Supplied with 34x IN-7 and IN-7A nixies, through hole printed coil PCBs and all-brass bolts and thumbnuts.
No more days weeks spent winding coils, just assemble the PCBs and concentrate instead on an individual case finish for your board. Now includes a 12V power supply. Currently offered with IN-7 (round) pieces â we also have an oval IN-15 version of the board listed. Future options may be limited as stock runs out - remeber these tubes haven't been made since 1991.
The symbols used to depict each piece may vary from the photograph depending on the availability of nixies. These symbol nixie tubes are now in short supply and once they're gone, that's it. Game over.
