Make your own large wall clock. 18" Black, Gothic Style clock hands

This gothic style clock hand is traditional and great for many DIY projects. Our steel clock hands for high torque motors can be spray painted different colors, and trimmed as long as you keep them balanced.  


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 High Torque Motors.

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

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.

high quality, well packaged 02/08/2020
By Amy G
I ordered these clock hands as a replacement set when repairing a broken clock. They are very good quality and Bear Woods did and excellent job of packaging them so they weren't bent during shipping. Additionally they were very quickly shipped with great communication for the entire purchase.

One of the hands I received was bent when I received it. It seems like it got damaged in shipping because when I received the package the hand which was bent was sticking out of the side of the box.

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.
