Default False Gear Clock

Here's one I did before the hands quit and I had forgot I had done. It's similar to one Sue Mey had done for the magazine (issue 28). I used poplar for the frame and painted it with wraught iron paint for texture. The Numerals and gears are walnut and use the IIII for the number 4 which brought up a discussion before. But after looking at all my old antique hardware and restoration catalogs seemed perfectly correct for the period I was trying to get. I had originally put black hands onthe clock but after finding the florescent ones I replaced them.

G'day pop,
You have created a very novel and interesting time piece there.

That's pretty neat. A clock with gears, but they don't actually do anything. I bet it was easier than making the wooden gear clock. Mine still doesn't run right, but it does get a lot of compliments when people come to visit.

That is a very cool design. I like the false gears, I have never seen one like that before.
I wonder if a person could attach a false gear to the second hand to give an illusion of moving mechanisms

I like the false gears, too. Great job on the cutting!

I bet with a bit of tinkering you could attach a gear to the second hand. Use basswood, perhaps, so it wouldn't be too heavy for the mechanism to move. It'd be best if the gear were close to the other fake gears, which could be problematic if the rod that turns the second hand is on the inside. But I bet you rig something.

Good job!

Funny you should mention gears on the clock hands... I had ordered some hands form Klockit that were actually made with the centers as gears but they were too small for the size I made the clock. They would have been more for a clock with a face of about 3-4" only. This one is 8". Really neat though. Along with the hour and minute hands that were based on gears was a second hand that was zig-zaged like it was bent.

I get the less expensive battery movements and they don't have enough torque to handle any attachments to the hands (I've tried). They even loose time if I put an over sized sweep second hand on them. Klockit does sell a better version of the movement that's supposed to have more torque to handle l-o-n-g-e-r hands. It's only a couple bucks more.

They have hands that resemble fishing rods (Yo Trout here ya go!), pencils and pens, and forks and knives for a kitchen clock. Thanks for the comments...

Nice clock there, even if the gears are only for the lookers.

Default Clock hands - fishing, pencils - gears

Here's a picture of those clock hands I mentioned. They range in size from 3" (pencils) to 4-3/4 (tools) to fishing rods (4-1/4). The gear hands are pretty small like I said...1/3/8 from center of hour hand. Still neat though. See if they get your creative minds going. You can get them from Klockit. They run about $.70/pair without sweep second hand. Gear hands were only on the website. I didn't see them in the catalog.
