I just received your In-17 4 tube board and put it together. After much cursing and about 3 hours of fitting In 17 tubes to the board , I powered up the example code and behold a clock was born.

Thanks for the great kit and boards. Only thing I would say is that the gap between tubes on the 1n 17 board is a little tight, there is almost no wasted space and fitting the tubes to such a tight board invoked many colourful Anglo Saxon curses.

Yes, this is something I noticed as well, I will look into fixing that for the next batch of boards.

Also, PICS!! The robotpirate demands pics of your project  Smiley

Sadly my Digitial camera decided to die a couple of months ago and the brick of a mobile I use has no camera so I am unable to photograph the finished article. It does however look identical to the one you posted. I am holding the daughter board in place by purely mechanical grip and connecting the cathodes with a 20 way ribbon cable.
