Piece base case

Really all that's needed is sand the top flat (wet sanding is best). Round off the edges and engrave the top if you want or leave it as is - then colour the piece with gold/silver paint/coloured wax/whatever you want to use. Drop the piece PCB assembly in and use a little glue (from the top) to hold it in place. Push in the nixie.
I used hot melt engravers wax for the ready built board pieces - despite the burned fingers it does work well.

Re: Piece base case

I note that the NIXIE holders have an internal shoulder onto which the PCB sits so the pins of the NIXIE show. Yet when I try to sit PCB (with a NIXIE with clean pins) in it, the NIXIE will not strike. With the top board & as a test with the base board on top (for a double thickness) the NIXIE strikes, but at the height of the internal shoulder (in the holder) this raises the pick-up coil (on the NIXIE PCB) too high and it simply will not strike. Can you advise me please?
