Nixie hoard or collection, you decide

Posted on Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 in parts by DP

Like many, we’ve amassed a bunch of nixie tubes but never use them for much. Matseng shared his hoard collection:

Top left to right: 10 pcs alphanumeric ZM1350, 5 boxes @ 20 each of the tiny IN17, 8 pcs of the huge B7971.
Left middle: A box with about 100 random nixies with 16 pcs of the red-tinted ZM2010
Bottom left to right: 25 pcs of the beautiful & large IN-18, and then a bunch of random front-view tubes in different sizes, 10 pcs IN-1

But I want more! and more! :-)

    If they are in boxes, it is hoarding. On display, a collection. I am an unrepentant electronics hoarder.

      If the box ‘o’ goodies comes my way, I’m more than happy to throw in whatever you want. Most of the items I have are not worth shipping individually (I live in Australia).
      I put my name down ages ago but I’ve never received a reply.
