To take a plain old timepiece or clock and make it run backwards and fit it into a really cool clock face to make your own customized clock you can hang proudly ,because you made it yourself.
How cool is it?
well, its pretty cool take it from me i had this clock in my dorm room for a year and everyone who has seen it has asked me how to make one or asked me to make one for them. (like hell i'll make one for you...).
Has this been done before?
yep. there is another Instructable for this which is also very detailed if you want another source to clear your doubts. link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Reverse_Clock_1/ By crazypoop.
But i made the reverse clock 4 years ago for my science project about the working of a clock.
Why would you want to make a clock that runs backwards?
Because its cool.
Step 1: Things you'll need.
1. You'll need a quartz movement . i.e the part of the clock that actually has the mechanics and the hands. I took mine from an old clock that i had lying around which i never used. you can also buy one its pretty cheap.
2. Carboard, Paper and pens to make the clock face and to make the numbers on it.
3. Extremely optional is a Digital camera to record each step because the Instructable involves opening up the clock and removing the cogs so you might want to record each step when you put the parts back in.
That's all . So, without further ado lets make a creepy backwards running clock.
