We live in a throw away society. Who it was that first noticed this, I don't know, but I dislike throwing things away.
So what will we salvage today? How about a clock?
I had a funny spongebob one that my grandma had gotten me for Christmas last year, but unfortunately, it had no alarm, so I couldn't use it for much. Plus, the ticking of my alarm clock and the wall clock was getting annoying, so today I finally put the poor thing on it's deathbed.
If you are interested in learning how I did it and what I salvaged, read on.
Step 1: Specs
I'm not going to need an equipment list. All you need is a screw driver and the clock itself.
Now, the specific details on the clock I'm taking apart:
- The casing was entirely plastic
- There was only one (1) screw
- The lens was plastic
These have been the specs for nearly every clock I've ever taken apart. I have never attempted one with a glass lens or wooden casing, and I really don't recommend trying it.
