Great work. Enjoyed. I’m a noob when it comes to these things. I’m wanting to get this and put it into a custom wooden case. Do you think it is achievable to not have the buttons and power jack on the board itself. As in have it mounted where I want on my case. My simple mind thinks running a wire from the board to where I want the individual components would work. Am I way off?

I have built 2 of these, They now come with a darkened plastic film for over the front of the display, Mine have blue led’s and they look great, They have stopped giving you a battery though, Do you know what type of battery it is?

Do they do a six digit clock kit ?  And can you connect a GPS board to keep the clock on time ?  tjl

I bought the blue version, and after 1h i have had a good and nice clock…. The clock chime counts the hour.

Ok, I got this kit in the mail, had a good time assembling it over two evenings and it worked as soon as I plugged it in. Does anyone have a clue what the – 1 – – 2 – or – 3- etc.. is in the display when it cycles through the date, temp every minute or so? I have no idea what that is for and why it displays and there is nothing in the instructions about it. Also, not sure why but my battery that retains the clock settings exploded after having run for a day or so. Blew right off the back. Clock still works fine though. Also, the blue display is too dim with the foil over the digits to see at night time from across the room so I just put a jumper in the spot where the sensor was and eliminated the sensor all together. Looks great now, no dimming however which is ok with the blue digits.

a green cellophane / filter will bump up the contrast, but it may also ruin the show.

and you have your trisistor and foto sensor wrong placed they must be outside the box for GOOD results.
