Common Questions

and tips for choosing clock motors and hands

When repairing a clock we always recommend new hands as your old ones may not fit.

  • What is the difference between High Torque and Standard Quartz Clock movements?

    High Torque Clock Motors are more powerful - made specifically to handle the extra weight of longer clock hands up to 18" in length. This means you can make a clock with a clock face/dial that is 42" wide or even greater! Comparatively, standard movements run clock hands up to 4.5 inches long. » Jump to Motors and Hands for Large Clocks

  • What are the different types of standard/mini clock movements?

    1) USA Made Step Style by Takane (AA batteries)These movements will make a very slight stepping sound.

    2) Continuous Sweep Clock Movements operate virtually silently with a sweeping second hand motion.

    3) » Click Here for Pendulum, Chiming, Pendulum + Chime Movements in AA Cell or C Cell options.

  • How do I choose the right size clock motor & hands?

    How to choose clock motors and hands for replacement

    1) Refer to the figure above, or » Click Here for helpful info (a new window or tab will open)  

    2) The size of hands is based on the length of the minute hand from the mounting hole to the end of the minute hand. (Figures 3 & 4 above) Most can be slightly trimmed if need be, and they are all USA made of aluminum.  Our customers also spray paint them.

    3) Our clock motors are sized by the thickness of the dial the movements can go through.  EG Q-16 below will go through up to 3/4" thick material. If your material is too thick, consider removing some to in-set the clock.  Or if your clock face material is too thin, consider adding some material behind the face so the hands will sit closer to your clock face.

    4) If you are using a glass or plastic cover over the movement, make sure you have at least 1/8" extra clearance as you will need room for the second hand. Our mini quartz clock mechanism fits a 3" hole if recessed.
