Subject: WTD: Worn-Out Nixie Tubes

You may have seen my earlier posts on buying/trading Nixie display tubes with digits over 1 inch (25mm) tall, or my other posts regarding the possibility to restore such tubes that have been blackened by long use or excessive current.

Though I am still seeking more of the large size Nixies, I now have sufficient information to begin experiments into the possibility of Nixie tube restoration.

For my experiments I need Nixie tubes that are no longer useful due to darkening of the glass, and/or failure to fully and reliably light one or more digits (up to and including complete failure to light at all.) I can't use tubes having physical damage such as cracked or broken glass, or pins broken off.

Due to the nature of the work necessary, I can only use tubes with digits 5/8 inch (15mm) tall or larger.

Anyone having such tubes is requested to contact me regarding donating or selling your Nixies to me.

If desired, I will pay reasonable shipping costs and a nominal price per tube depending on what you have to offer.

Please contact me by email. See below for a hint to get past my spam block.
