Quantity 2 Tack Switch Panasonic part number: EVQ-PAC09K - these replace the switches which come with the FunKlock kit such that the adjustment switches are accessible from the back of the clock. Note: PV Electronics sells compatible buttons with the Finned Case for the FunKlock, you might be able to source these switches from them when you get your Nixie Tube Clock Kit.

Optional Quantity 3 M1x3mm screws to install smaller gears.
I used these to install small gears on the buttons and one of the sides. You can just use M2x5mm screws and gears with larger holes in the centre instead. These screws can be found in eye glasses repair kits for cheap.
