Store updated with new stock


The Akafugu Store has been updated with several items that have been out of stock for quite some time.

Head over to https://store.akafugu.jp to order.

Feel free to contact us directly at info AT akafugu.jp if you have inquiries about stock status. It is also possible to purchase our clocks without the tubes, but this is only possible via email, not using our store.

New review of VFD Modular Clock

The site Tube Clock DB has recently been ressurected after a long period of inactivity. It collects reviews and articles on Nixie and VFD clocks etc. and has a forum for discussion.

Manuel Azevedo contributes to the site, and recently bought a couple of VFD Modular Clocks from us with a selection of shields.

He's posted a review, please check it out:
