Introduction: Everyone Has to Make an Infinity Clock ,its the Law!

About: the a b c approach is not for me .all feedback welcome. thanks for looking. if you would like some assistance or are interested in purchasing something don't be a stranger .

I wanted to make a timelaps video of the making of an infinity clock, (practice for the timelaps bookbinding) ,however the camera i used can use its battery faster than i can charge it.

it recorded until the point of getting the lights working, i only noticed it had stopped after the clock was complete.

Step 1: Materials and Tools


  • poundland clock (glass front is preferable to plastic)
  • mirror sticky back plastic (fablon) wilko and hobbycraft sell it
  • mirror window tint, halfords (or buy a sample from an ebay seller)
  • small light source, i used the backlight leds from a lcd screen.
  • power for the light source
  • switch


  • soldering iron
  • wire cutters/strippers
  • screwdriver
  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • hole punch
  • pen
  • cloth to clean glass
  • hot glue gun
  • saw or something to cut plastic

Step 2: Led Lights

this is the sort of thing, i took a guess at 3volts being safe.

Step 3: Soldering and Diagram

video shows the tricky soldering bit. colour coded diagram shows how all the bits fit together

Step 4: Stuffing It All in the Box.

make sure the clock mechanism has got 12 in the right place, mine was a bit off so adjustments were made, took some photos whilst doing this as the initial video failed.
