Re: What was your most amazing stroke of luck?

Time to down size

As I approach 75 years old I have decided, reluctantly, to downsize my collection to a large degree. I am still as keen as ever, but they are heavy, at the moment I'm still fit and can still move them (slowly) but that won't last, and as we live in a 200 years old country cottage space is limited, s...

Re: Nice little Nixie tube style clock

Flushed with the success of my pretend nixie clock and feeling full of fun I decided to upgrade to the real thing. And I'm pleased I did. I love it. Always wanted one, but it's only in the last few years they are readilly available. I bought this one from the Ukraine. It's very well made and uses NO...
