Simple Circular Saw Blade Clock



About: I've always been a very creative person and a self confessed video gaming geek. I'm a husband, father, artist and blogger

I had an old circular saw blade laying around, and I didn't have the heart to throw it out.

I needed a clock for my workshop and thought a saw blade would make an awesome clock face.

In this instructable I show you how I made a simple circular saw blade clock in no time at all.

Step 1: Things Needed

  • An old circular saw blade (any size)
  • One clock mechanism
  • One AAA battery
  • Two washers, big enough to overlap blade (see image)

Step 2: Prep Clock Face

If needed, clean the saw blade. You could even blunt the teeth (optional).

Using a permanent marker pen, add the numbers (also optional).

Step 3: Assemble the Parts

Place the main body of the clock mechanism at the back, and center.

Depending on the mechanisms arm length, add your over sized washers. Also add the washers and screws that came with the clock mechanism.

Now add the clock hands to 12 o'clock. Place in order, hour, minutes and seconds.

Set to the correct time, mount to wall and drink tea.
