Complete Kits 

There three full kits available to build

Kit One  - Bare bones Kit

The first kit is a bare bones PCB.  All plastic parts are supplied but may need a little removal of flash to fit perfectly. You are advised that construction from a bare PCB requires a good skill level in soldering and assembly techniques working from a circuit diagram. While most of the assembly is straightforward, the filament lamps internally are mounted on brittle plastic and can be broken very easily. We supply frames for the filament lamps to make the task easier but advise extreme care in handling these lamps, we cannot accept returns of filament lamps that have been broken. You must purchase new lamps from the spares listing. The kit comes with a ready programmed Arduino and the voltage of the booster has been set to 11 volts. Adjusting this voltage yourself above twelve volts will destroy the Arduino. Do not do it, a damaged Arduino cannot be returned. A kit constructed but failed to work can be returned for correction. This is chargeable and a quote will be given before commencing. Usually it is polarised components fitted the wrong way (check them), or a damaged module done on assembly. Badly constructed PCB s are not viable to repair and we will advise the purchase of a complete assembled and working board. IMPORTANT - this is a kit to construct a ready designed clock. We don’t supply the program listing to adjust the program yourself. The program controls 41 multi voltage LEDs, four switches and a sounder using sacrificial techniques in multiplexing, along with pulse width modulation to protect the various LEDs current and voltage requirements. This is would require extensive document explanations to understand how techniques works and any upset in the program due to user alterations can destroy the LEDs. 

Kit Two  - Ready built and working PCB

Kit two includes all electronics assembled and tested.  Assembly is confined to the case work including removal of flashing and checking all parts fit comfortably together. Assembly requires a medium level in expertise. Everything slots together using 4 nuts and bolts. Assembly one hour.

Kit Three - PCB to assemble and fit in your own case

All the electronics constructed and working to be assemble in your own case. Care must be taken in handling of the PCB as while we protect the delicate filament lamps in costumed designed frames they can be broken with rough handling or dropping the board face down.
