Six Tube Nixie Clock - German Z560M - Russian INS-1 Lamps - Katalox Case - Aluminum Bezels
I am fitting an RGB LED behind each tube, so that red coating will kill any color like green and some blue that I set the LED to. So off it needs to come. Here is the rear of the sockets setup.
The LED will shine into the back of the glass tube, and bounce light around inside the aluminum bezel.
Well, there's the blue channel soldered up anyway, now on to the green and red.
The red coating on the front of these z560M tubes seems to restrict the blue color, and probably will the green.
I think I will remove that red coating with some warm water.
And they all work fine. This is a mix of green and blue, and I am still tinkering with finding the correct values for the potentiometers I will use for red, green, and blue.
And surprisingly to me, one of my favorite settings, a very TRON-esque white...
Even off, I like the way it looks. I finally got the red coating off the tubes, and really like the way the insides look against the aluminum bezels.
Got a little work done on the box, will finish it with polyurethane once I get the back plate back from the etchers, and trimmed to fit.
Doing a little work on the colon lamp separators here...
Control panel plate back from the etchers, turned out nice...
Final polyurethane finish and assembly, this shot without the backlighting on...
This shot with with Red all the way up...
This with the Green all the way up...
And with the Blue channel all the way up.
The rear control panel is done as well.
