Make your own large wall clock. 18" Black, Spear Style clock hands
This spear style clock hand is unique 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.
