My needs were served better with my multimeter, so I dismantled it and harvested the tubes. A disposable camera A potentiometer of Kohms or higher A resistor of 50Kohms or higher Wire cutters A small screwdriver may not be needed, depends on your camera A multimeter A soldering iron Solder Red wire Black wire. You can’t break even, except on a very cold day. The latest in the long list of uses is to create nixie tube drivers.

Never did that again: Now, wire up the circuit for the nixie tube.

This was because 3 was at the top of the electrode stack and looked best. Back when I was young and took everything apart Tbe could get my hands on, I found this fact out the hard way.

Acknowledgments, Credits, and Bibliography. This is more than enough to give you a potentially fatal electric shock if handled incorrectly. Email required Address never made public.
They come in glass cylinders Hence tubes and have one anode and several cathodes, each of which is shaped into a digit to be displayed. I got rid of the flash bulb, the capacitor and the inductor, then I could access the V that used to charge the capacitor off a single AA battery.
300 Volts in a roll of film: Ultra-portable Nixie Tube driver
Slightly OT, but if you watch the movie “Monsters Inc”. You can’t break even, except on a very cold day. You used the flash boards from disposable cameras. I have heard that the only company which still makes nixie tubes a Russian firm has increased production because of the resurgent interest in them.
Exercise caution throughout the following steps to avoid burns.
A couple of hours later it worked again, but I haven’t tested how long more. This doesn’t have much to do with Basic Stamps, but I thought I’d post it anyway Sounds like an interesting project bassmaster, it would be great if you could share your project when you complete it.
You can see two implementations dispozable this idea already on Flickr. You are commenting using your Facebook account.

Do not touch the capacitor or the flash circuit at this point, it may still have energy stored that could electrocute you. Make sure the object you use to discharge with has an insulated handle, and only use one hand to minimize risk of electricity flowing across your chest.
Of course, stupid me had to say to my wife “Wow those are nixies”, then had to spend two hours explaining what a “nixie” was This can be done by touching both wires coming out of the bottom of the capacitor with a screwdriver or other metal object.
I thought its use was limited to that.

This step is going to vary depending on the camera you choose to take apart. Solder a resistor across the leads of the capacitor. If you want more details, you should probably ask Bean for his two-hour answer [noparse]: I’m driving them at V.
