Product Description


Have you ever wondered what your project needed for that nice vintage look?

 

A genuine Russian IN-14 nixie tube can do that quite well. Most of them also say CCCP on the sides too. Which is pretty cool! They are a fantastic chunk of history that is getting harder and harder to find.

 

This is a KIT of 6 Nixie tubes that are matched to our best ability. It also includes 6 Nixie indicator lamps.


These Nixies have the part number: IN-14

Most of our IN-14 tubes are new, but have been desoldered from equipment by workers in Ukraine and Russia.

Condition:

These tubes may or may not have the little plastic bases or "stand-offs" that are at the bottom shown in some of the images, this is completely at random and something that we have no control over. We do receive more of them without the plastic bases, rather than with. So please keep that in mind.

They will also have varying lead length, possibly some glue residue or even paint on them, which is leftover from the old equipment they were removed from. When you order more than one, we do our best to make sure they are all identical before we ship them. And we test ALL of our IN-14 tubes to ensure 100% function before we ship them out. That being noted, please also note that some of these tubes will be missing a lead/pin for one or both of the decimal points in the tube. This does not affect the functionality at all. It does mean that you can't use the internal decimal points on some of the tubes. This isn't really that big of a deal, especially since most people use LEDs as their decimal and colon markers. If you want, we can even throw in a free Nixie Indicator with each tube that is missing a decimal lead. These not only use the same technology, but also have the same glow. So they will perfectly match your Nixie project perfectly! But you need to remember to ask us to add these, in the order comments when checking out. Or we won't know that you would like these included.


Please remember to handle these tubes with extreme care. Most of them are from the soviet era and even though they may be "new old stock" are quite old. Move and bend the leads as seldom as possible to prevent them breaking off. Try to plan out how you want them and how they will fit into your project before bending the leads. The leads can be soldered to. Remember to not drop them as they are made of glass and filled with a gas! If you crack these or damage the glass in any way, the gas can leak out and the tube will stop functioning. These tubes to NOT come with sockets.
