Ice Tube Clock Case Doesn't Fit.

by Gminervini on Sat Feb 16, 2013 1:05 am

have just finished building my ice tube clock and found it a very interesting and satisfying build.

The clock works great and I paid particular attention to the instructions regarding fitting the tube end through the hole in the end of the H side which it does perfectly. problem is that the screws that hold on the LH side seem to be too big and press up against the PCD board that the tube is soldered to preventing the case from closing properly.

I am very sure that I have built this properly and was wondering if the size of the screws has changed or if this is just a common problem?

keep up the great work with really good kits and projects.

It is difficult to get a clear shot so hope this helps.

It's all good now! In a moment of genius I fixed it!!!

I really think you should develope a better/easier way of closing this case.

Glad you got it together! :D How is the clock working for you?
Was the opposite end of the tube not poking through the hole in the plastic? Getting everything lined up and held in place can be a little fiddly. Do you have any suggestions for improving the case?
