Here's what you need to know for choosing new or replacement clock parts:
1) The Thickness of your Clock Face - you just need a measurement of the material the clock shaft has to go through. (What is the measurement A in Figure 2 above? Or in Figure 1, how thick is that piece of wood that's ready for a clock motor? NOTE - Sometimes you will have to remove some material with a chisel or router or other tool to inset your clock movement.
2) Our clock hands are measured as in Figure 4 from the the Mounting Hole to the end of the Minute Hand. (In Figure 4 you can see the overall length of the hands pictured is longer)
3) Choose clock hands based on the size of your clock dial. In Figure 3 this clock is a 24" clock and the designer chose 10" Clock Hands - generally you want your clock hands to sit somewhere between the inside and outside edge of your numbers or numerals. Clock Hands above 4-1/2" require a higher power clock motor, called High Torque.
4) What type of Clock Movement? Scroll Down to See Pictures of Clock Motors - Click on a picture to see the options once you have the measurements from step 1 to 3 above. Or use this table to quickly jump and see the options.
Clock Mechanisms are in 2 Power Categories - Standard for hands up to 4.5" and High Torque for hands up to 18".
A) Standard Step Motion
B) Upgrade to Continuous Sweep
C) Add a Pendulum or Chime (or Both)
Note: All movements except High Torque come with free hanging brackets. For many designs our Picture Hanging Hardware (click here for details) will be a great option for hanging your clocks.
