12-1/4" Premium High Torque Hands - Black Tapered Style

The measurement is from the hole where the hands mount onto the high torque shaft to the tip.  Hour hands are proportionate.

Tips for making larger wall clocks:

1. Second hands not included - we don't recommend second hands with high torque movements as they draw too much power.  

2. Still want a second hand? - choose our balanced 10 inch red or black second hands that work with our Continuous Sweep (Silent) High Torque Motors.

3. Scroll down to select your movement to go with these hands. Or click here.

4.  These hands can be trimmed to a shorter length if you keep the hand balanced. (just put the mounting hole of the minute hand on your fingertip to check the balance) They can be spray painted another color.

If you are going to trim the hand to fit a particular size clock dial, the minute hand must remain balanced. Normally people just glue the material removed right under where it was cut from. You can check the balance of any minute hand just by placing the mounting hole on your fingertip. If it lays there flat then it’s balanced, but if it falls off your fingertip, it’s not properly balanced.

Large hands 08/09/2022
By Thomas Nelson
12” hands look very nice and fit the motor but gave three stars because the counterweights are too thick and interfered with each other. They are working fine after squashing the counterweights flat in a vice.

Product is as pictured and good quality. It was difficult to find clock hands as big as we needed. Thankful to find these and be able to finish the beautiful wooden clock my husband made.

just what i expected

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-65 will go through 3/8" 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.
