Hello! Thanks for buying our ThinkGeek nixie thermometer kit! I hope you like it!

The instructions below should see your thermometer construction from start to finish. But if you ever get stuck, just send an email to our engineer Tony, and he’ll help you out. Please don’t email ThinkGeek about these problems. They can’t help you, and they won’t forward the email for you. Email Tony instead.

Also, you might notice our instructions are all posted on our forums. This is so people can ask for advice, or help other people out. So if you get stuck with something, try posting your issue on the boards. Somebody might have a handy solution.

Okay, let’s get to it. I recommend you follow the list numerically, but, if you fancy, you can start on any part you like.

1: The first step is to make sure you have everything. Here’s a full list of the kit contents, with photographs. If some of the stuff in your kit doesn’t match the photographs, check this page.

2: Once you’re sure you have what you need, start by assembling the main PCB. The instructions for that are right here.

3: Now your thermometer needs a case, right? Here are the instructions.

4: Once your thermometer is up and running, you might need help learning to use it. We’ve got a user manual for it right here.

Alright, you’re done! That was pretty simple. If you’re having any issues, check the troubleshooting section. If that fails, send an email to Tony and ask for help.
