Step 9: Securing the clock

I painted the top of the clock mechanism with gold paint. Then glued it to the back of the hard drive platter. I also taped the back with duct tape.  I added a small nut on the clock mechanism around the hands to provide stability for when the skewer is placed in.  The plate and clock fit snugly between the gears on the base.  I didn't glue it on since I need access to the battery.
