Credit: Got the Idea from here : http://www.instructables.com/id/Lantern-Clock/?ALLSTEPS
To assemble the Lanterns you'll need:
12 3x100 mm threaded rod (may be a bit to long but rather to long than to short)
3 3x20mm bolt
3 60x50x60 perspex tubes
30 3mm dome nuts
3 3x60mm threaded rod or 3x60mm screw
3 4x75mm threaded rod
3 4x 280mm threaded rod
12 4mm dome nuts
wood for stand - I used normal pine shelving
Electronics to drive the nixie tubes - got mine here: http://www.open-rate.com/Store.html
PCB for nixie tubes - gerber files included.
Print quantities: In the file name. The side plates can be 1 off each though.
I'm still finishing up the clock and will update as I continue ....
Update: clock is done. I did add some feet and a box for the electronics. Enjoy!!
