  1. That was very timely! I found my way to the Oscilloscope clock article on jfet.org from a link on Adafruit and have just ordered all the parts to build one myself. I’m building myself up a collection of geeky and retro clocks from all sources I can find, and an O-clock totally fits the bill. As such, this discussion of the detailed tech of the electrostatic CRT was very useful to me. (And yes, I know, I’m working with 1000 volts, and will be exceedingly careful, rubber gloves, insulated tools, bleeders, etc..!)
