I made a new clock from old part laying around... i used screws for the numbers in the dial.I think this makes the clock a bit different from others.
do you like it? :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Things You Need
>Wall Clock Mechanism
>plastic wood (or any thing which will work fine as dial and easy to drill)
Step 2: Preparing Clock Dial
firstly you need to measure the size of the clock machine.Then draw a box on the plastic wood as measured size .Then carefully cut the plastic wood and put the machine in that case. as the machine is black i colour so i decided to print a dial which is available on internet (or you can make your own) . this printed dial will help to hide clock machine.
Step 3: Making Numbers
Next I print numbers on a graph paper and glue the numbers on the plastic wood.Then i fill up the numbers body with some screws.
As plastic wood is not so hard so in this case i use screw driver to do this.if you choose a hard think as your dial then it will be better to drill some hole first.
Step 4: Finishing
if you follow all steps then your modern clock is ready to rock ... :)
i know my design is very simple but you can make complicated one using more screws!!
The key idea of this project was from brydanger's "Modern Industrial House Numbers" :)
