That’s a good idea. And you can’t tell if it’s open or closed through the blades though either.

There’s no lever on your clock, so it’s the caliper that counts.

Surely the levers will be the hands on the clock? Could have a Sport lever as the long hand and a pro lever as the short hand...
Great project.


Unfortunately the levers would be too heavy, as the mechanism is likely to be quartz and i dont think that robust as all the larger hands available for it as thin and lightweight.


I suppose I should thank Coreygun for this prod or it might have stalled at the missing caliper issue :oops:
But I've taken the advice on board and so managed to get a No8 Mini M4 and as there's a couple of the calipers arent in the best of condition with now using the m4 calipers meant ive also replaced a grubby one(C2 No6) with an m4 No6, which I think improves it no end.

Just really the No12, which I think is a mini, so I'll be on the lookout for that while researching which is the best quartz mechanism to support the largest hands, and theres bound to be a quality scale :?

Size increased somewhat :oops: I'm now using a wheel so its a bloody huge clock including the tyre.


Pic. Again ta for the prod 8)

Cool. Perhaps you could use a beaded and a non braided hose cut to the right lengths for the hands. Bit of wire inside to keep the shape maybe? Nice banjo bolt to attach to the mechanism.

Looking good Andy and I like coryguns suggestions using braided and unbraided hose for the hands I think banjos on both ends would look good.
