The purpose of this Instructable is to walk through the operations for setting the time on the Huge Roman Numeral Clock. The high-torque movement used in this project was very simple, so things like accounting for daylight savings time were not necessary to set the time. In all, it was a very easy process for setting the time.
Tools Used: None (outside of those needed to build the clock itself)
Materials Used: High-torque movement clock motor, large clock hands (12” minute hand), and 1 AA battery
Step 1: Set to Noon
With the clock hands attached to the high-torque movement motor, wind the hands until they are at noon. It’s best to cycle the hands through a 12-hour period to see if there are any interference between the hands or between the hands and the face of the clock.
Step 2: Set Time
With the hands set to noon, use the time-adjust knob on the back of the motor, adjust to the current time.
Step 3: Insert Battery
Insert one AA battery.
Step 4: Mount Clock
Mount the clock and enjoy!
