    Hi Maureen, It is difficult to say if the hands on your clock mechanism would fit onto the one we stock. It’s very lightly that although they look similar the size of the holes on the hand and the way the second hand fixes onto the movement may be different.

    Hi Dave, I have just doubled checked and the measurement for the hour hand of 65mm that we list is correct, this includes the circle section as well, so this movement should be fine for the length of the hour hand.

    Hello Stuart, Unfortunately this is the only movement we stock. However if you housed the movement in a waterproof enclose with the spindle coming through this you could then have the clock outside. The enclosure could also then form the clock face.

    Hi Paul, Do you mean the maximum panel thickness that the clock can have mounted on it? The maximum panel that the clock can take is 8mm.

    Hi Besmir, Unfortunately we only stock one style of clock movement, the spindle thread is approximately 7.5mm in diameter.

    Hi Alanna, the movement makes the standard ticking noise as the second hand moves.

    Rita,

    I’ve just got a clock movement out and done some measuring, please be aware that I’ve only measured one, so whilst these figures will be indicative of all movements, there may be a small amount of variation.

    The inside of the hour hand is measuring 4.9mm and the shaft tapers from 5.0mm to 5.1mm. The inside of the second hand is 2.95mm and the shaft tapers from 3.17mm to 3.24mm. I’m unable to measure the second hand as it is inside the assembly, but I suspect the pin that the hand fits on to is 0.8mm, but please remember this is not measured.

    Best regards

    Michael

    Unfortunately the fixings are brought with the clock movements and we are unable to purchase additional fixings in. As such we can only supply them in the packs with the movements.

    We stock a standard clock movement, as such I wouldn’t be able to say if it would be a suitable replacement for that specific movement as I was unable to find any details regarding the movement you have.

    This is currently the only clock movement we stock, as such we don’t have a movement that would be suitable. Unfortunately we don’t have a shop that you could visit either.

    It is difficult to say if this would be complicated and how expensive this would be to do. The mechanism is located within the housing, and as such this would need to be opened up to allow you to make alterations to how it works. After a quick search there seems to be little information on creating these so I would suspect they could be difficult to create.

    The battery for the clock movement is located in the back, as such you shouldn’t need to find a battery housing.

    The maximum panel thickness for the product is 8mm, so 6mm MDF should be fine.

    Our clock movements use plastic hands which weight a maximum of 6g’s, as such it wouldn’t be advisable to use components heavy than this. The clock mechanism can be used with the MDF clock faces which are 170mm in diameter, as such a clock face of 80cm may place a lot of strain on the spindle of the movement.

    The spindle is roughly 21mm including the second hand, and the nut is 2.3mm thick. The thickness of the clock movement body itself is 15.8mm. So the total for the body and spindle is roughly 36.8mm.
