Here is a circuit you may consider building on a perf board. The 74141's are no longer available but the Russians still produce a replacement decoder/driver. I bought some from Ebay but haven't built the clock yet. Although they were shipped from Tampa FL, they had all kinds of Russian stamps on the package. Here is an Amazon.com link.

This might be doable even for a guy like myself. I will have to take a good look at it tomorrow (almost 1:30 AM here .. finishing up some "real" work).

I did contact the guy in Germany about the clock above. I asked if he had a board, kit or even a complete clock. He replied "I'm sorry, no" ... hmmmm ... I was hoping he even had just a board I could buy.

Thanks!

I found this "How to build a Nixie clock.PDF", on my computer and though I would send it to you.
