Step 1: Materials and Tools
a bike wheel
After calling around, I found most cycleries have old parts that are up for grabs. A place on Polk St. had great spare wheels.
a clock or clock mechanism
I used an old Ikea clock of mine- http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70098989/
a glue gun
an exacto knife
Optional add ons:
tin foil and cardboard:
I used these to extend the arms on my clock and make them longer to accomodate my new face.
I ended up hanging my clock from a curtain rod in my room.
Step 2: Step 1: Telling Time
Just some stabbing (and near finger slicing) and the inner part came right out!
To change the length of the hands:
I used good old kitchen tin foil and some cardboard from an old sketchbook.
I wrapped the tin foil around the minute hand and stuck a piece of cardboard on top of the hour hand.
Then I secured it with a dab of hot glue.
Step 3: Step 2: Assembly
Evenly apply hot glue to back of your movement and then hold it against the hub for about a minute. It'll stick!
If you want to hang your clock, wrap rope or string in between the spokes. You create a loop
Congrats on your new clock!
Keep the time and wheels a turnin'.
