HOW TO- Make an IV-18 VFD Vacuum Russian clock

Jkx has a really interesting nixie-style clock – “After my nixie clock, I decided to build a new one based on a old VFD vacuum tube. In fact, the brother of a friend (which live in Ukrainia) give me a bag of tubes. Beside I already have a little set of this kind, I discover the IV-18. This one, is really big, and perfect for a clock.” [via] – Link & video.
