4-1/2" Second Hand -  Brass

This second hand has an American “I” shaft configuration. Step hands are considered to be optional additions to clocks. They are measured from the centre of the mounting bushing to the tip of the clock hand.

⇓ Scroll Down for Clock Motors and Accessories ⇓ ⇓ Choose Silent Sweeping Motion, or Step Motion,  or Chime/Pendulum Motors ⇓
High Torque Clock Motors are more powerful than standard/mini motors - made specifically to handle the extra weight of longer clock hands up to 18" in length. Standard/Mini movements run clock hands less than 5 inches long. 

how to choose clock movements and hands

How do I choose the right size clock motor & hands? 
1) Refer to the figure here, 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) 

3) Our clock motors are sized by the thickness of the dial the movements can go through.  EG. High torque Q-64 will go through up to 5/8" thick material, while standard/mini motor Q-11 will go through 1/8" thick clock faces. (Figure 1 and  item "A" in Figure 2)


Tip 1)  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. 

Tip 2) Most hands can be slightly trimmed if need be.

Tip 3) Our customers also spray paint them.
