Old vinyl record clock
In this article, you will learn how to make aWall clock from an old vinyl record. For manufacturing will require a minimum of costs. This is also a great option for beginners to test their strengths.
Materials and tools:
- old vinyl record;
- clockwork (can be bought in the store for "masters") or disassemble unnecessary hours;
- acrylic lacquer in a can;
- Adhesive moment
- sandpaper, file;
- AA battery (finger);
- soft cloth and degreasing agent (wipes for cleaning the monitor).
Let’s measure the clock mechanism so that the shaft for the arrows passes through the hole in the plate, if the hole is small, then increase it using a file or sandpaper.
Degrease the surface and clean it of dirt and dust using a soft cloth and degreasing agent or wipes to clean the monitor before applying varnish.
Make sure the surface is dry and dust free. We proceed to painting in a well ventilated room - take a can of varnish, shake it well and apply it to the plate in 1-3 layers. Let each layer dry for about 15 minutes.
After the paint has dried, let's proceed to sticking numbers on our dial. First, we carefully arrange the numbers 12, 3, 6, 9 on the dial-plate - for convenience, you can draw 2 diagonals perpendicular to each other - make sure that we glue the dial correctly, then arrange and paste the rest - 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 , 8, 10, 11 in the same way.
Install the clock.
- unscrew the nut and washer from the shaft;
- insert the shaft through the hole in the plate;
- put on the washer and the nut and tightly twist it;
- put the minute, hour and second hands on the shaft.
- All Wall Watches from an old vinyl record are ready.
