This is a run of the mill clock with a radio and its now a cool looking bomb clock and I will show you how I did it for almost free becuase its all recycled stuff you dont have to buy a thing look in the trash, be a green decorater.
And could be used as a wedding cake topper if your into crime or bombs the bride and groom topper could look like james bond characters and be runing away from a explosion and the cake could look like a explosion just a thought. DONOT make a real bomb!

Step 1: Pick a clock

This step is all you. pick the clock to take apart and if your not so good at the taking apart you might want to pick a clock you dont like so much. I myself picked my everday clock it is best to pick a digital clock it looks best by far. You could use a normal hand clock but it wont work well or look cool I tryed it, dont kill your time.

Step 2: Dynamite BOOM

Now you can make the Booming part now dont use real explosives make a replica . Think dynamite or C4 I picked dynamite but you could make C4 out of white play doh. For dynamite you can cut paper towel rolles and roll them but I used old beer boxes cut squares out and rolled them after you have them rolled, tape it in three spots to hold them in place. When you cut the 3 sticks run water over them and sand them for a real look let dry roll, then tape. Now you can use clay or paper tofill the holes at the end and stick in some wire to look like fuses.

Nicely done instructable with easily available and inexpensive parts. I guess times are changing and similar projects in the past did not generate nearly as much discussion as yours. Here's some similar ones and I was inspired to make one too.

I think these are neat projects and mine is perched on my desk and it always generates fun conversation.

I don't think I would take it through an airport in a carry on but let's lighten up a little, watch a Roadrunner cartoon and check out some new products from Acme.
Great job on this build, it looks very neat. Looking back on my childhood we would use road flares taped together when playing cowboys and indians, fun ONLY when you are at HOME. We got caught playing around some boxcars and almost got ourselves into some serious trouble. Fortunately the police officer was a freind of my dad's and also quickly recognized the dynamite as flares. After he had a good chuckle he sent us on our way....after confiscating our 'IED's' ofcourse. :p
I wonder what the tsa would say about this.
Probably "You're under arrest" after they body-slammed you to the ground.
I figured it depends on which airport your in
  • Isreal- One shot to the head
  • U.S.A.- One shot to the leg then a series of questining from diferant agencies.
Atleast thats what i think
Actually in the us one to three shots to the chest (center of mass) that is what we are taught. That person could have a remote detonator and a shot to the leg would give them time to ignite it.
True but dead man switch then what do you do just run
then Guantanamo bay in America
The Mexican Federales would take the head shot too.
I was a Rescue Swimmer and flew out of Sac Inter Airport.several time s a month and I alway s carried me SCUBA Reg and B.C on board the plane with me, At first always told screener s what I had and What they would see (Lead Buckshot Marbles some wire and Metal D Battery s) Firts couple of times I showed it to them pryior to X-Ray,after they got to know me and what I was carring it was not a problem. Intell the time a new Screener was by them self and paid No Attion to what I had said and the Supper was away. They see 30LBS of Buckshot and Battery s wire s and PSI gauges well next thing I know Air Marshel s Cop s and ?? got me and I was notgoing to a Happy Place ,Thank God The Suppervieser who knew me came up and asked what was going on after a FEW tence moments thing s calmed down and ALL was good This was in 1991 TEN YEARS pryor to September 11 2001 SO KEEP THIS IN MIND ABOUT WHAT CAN HAPPEN at an AirPort
In the US possession of a fake explosive and threatening people with the fake explosive is is still a class C felony.

Same as if you hold up a convenience store with your finger under a jacket and tell the clerk its a gun is a crime.

Please be careful people are crazy and they are just going to get crazier, I know some of my neighbors would actually shoot you if they saw you with that. And at least in the US the law is on their side, the phrase "I was afraid for my life" is a powerful phrase in court. I do know most of this as my father in law is a retired judge and there are several cops in my direct family.

Please focus on something else, I made something similar using road flares and a cheap kitchen timer when I was a child and we were playing "guns" (early 1980's) and I freaked a cop out at the time by accident. Lets just say that was a very unpleasant experience. PLEASE BE CAREFUL COPS DON'T TAKE JOKES LIKE THIS.
