A fabulous choice of Clock Hands in Silver, Gold and Black colours to fit our Sweep Clock Movements clock mechanism.This listing is for HANDS only. You will need to order your movement on our other listing.
Hands: If you are using metal hands they normally have a polythene protective coating that needs removing. For safety reasons clock hands are deliberately made to be a very tight fit on clocks and when fitting clock hands there is a technique to use! It can help to fit the hour and minute (not the second) hands to the spindle before fitting the movement to the clock as can remove any small machining burr on the hands or movement spindle making fitting much easier when the movement has been fitted. Please hold the back of the movement case in to support it with one hand then hold the centre of the hour hand firmly and turn and wriggle it whilst gradually pushing it on to the movement spindle whilst making sure it is pointing to the 12. Repeat the process with the minute hand, again ensuring it is pointing to the 12. Finally, use the winder on the back of the movement to make sure the hands complete a full 12 hour cycle without touching together. If they do, just bend them slightly to move them apart then put in the battery and that's it. A new alkaline battery (not included) should last for several months and our clock movements are guaranteed for 12 months.
Please be careful not to destroy your clock movement by removing the second hand after it is fitted! The second hand fits VERY tightly as it is a metal to metal fit It is NOT intended to be removed after fitting as this can pull the metal hand spindle out of the movement which WILL destroy the movement! For this reason please don't push it on to the spindle too tightly, especially if you may want to remove it again. When you finally fit the second hand just push it on to the spindle enough to ensure it is firmly applied.
