Recommended Posts

View all our past group-buys here. This is number 7.

This is a group-buy for CubeBerg's extraordinary VFD clock for which he made a BoosterPack. I'm still awaiting a response from this ebay seller for the background color - clear or dark. I'm hoping to get clear.
Ok, we are going to strikeout the previous list and restart again. as the prices are revised.
The GB spreadsheet is here.

Kit includes Tube, PCB and components. You will have to putit together.
Price/kit US Shipping : 19.3
Price/Kit International: 21.67

Please read the notes. Limit two per member

I actually forgot about a couple of features in the video - I'll work on a new one once I knock out the alarm feature.


We'll need to look at sourcing the Max6921. Prices are pretty high ($9-$10) at low quantities, but drop to < $6 at 25+. Unfortunately, digikey only has 35 and Mouser has 53. Any other places to look?


MC34063 is dirt cheap about anywhere thankfully.


Bluehash - I'll upload the version of the PCB with the corrected footprint for the DS18B20 and without the Seeed order #. Any other requests for the PCB? Color?
