Step 1: Tools and Necessities
You will need:
Old Circuit board (salvaged)
Super glue ($1.00)
Wall clock kit ($9.99)
You can get the clock kit cheaper here:
A cordless or corded drill
A drill bit that roughly fits the inner brass bearing (1/4 inch)
Step 2: Drill
Drill a hole in the center of the board. Be sure that your not drilling into any electronic devise (capacitor, resistor, etc) After drilling, the board might be a little rough, if necessary, take some rough sand paper and smooth it out.
Step 3: Insert Clock Devise
Find which side you want your hands on and place the devise on the opposite side. Align the black box and screw in the brass insert. On this clock there was quit a bit of wiggle room. A good seal of super glue was used to secure the box to the back of the circuit board.
Step 4: Final Assembly
Attach the hands and nuts as directed by your kit. Insert battery. This part is simple. If you want you can even put more superglue on the slip joints (The hour hand on most kits is just a slip on)
Step 5: Admire
Hang it up. Set the Time. Show it off. Be inspired. Don't be late.
