Make Large Wall Clocks with 17.5 inch Tapered Black clock hands for high torque movements

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

These hands are USA Made of quality aluminum.  American “I’ shaft configuration. 

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. 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. High Torque Clock Movements to drive hands larger than 5 inches are sold separately.  Click here for the selection.

4.  These hands can be trimmed to a shorter length if you keep the hand balanced. 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.

Hands and movement aer great. Works perfectly. Minute hand, despite being wrapped very well, was a little bent at the tip. Most likely rough handling during shipping. Easily fixed. Custom service is great and very helpful.
 
Tips

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.
