How to make a clock in a bank
We offer today to your attention an unusual project, which simply glows with creativity. It will be a clock - a glass jar. The whole project takes about 30 minutes (if you have everything you need), does not require special skills and is simple enough to perform. At the same time, the finished version will surprise many. The only thing that time for such a clock is not very convenient, but as a decoration for a table or office they will look amazing (especially if you like creative things).
You will need:
- glass jar (with a twist cap);
- clock mechanism (you can disassemble the old clock or buy a dialing kit);
- self-adhesive paper (or thick adhesive tape and paint);
- Super glue;
1. Take the jar and clockwork. You will need to put the clockwork in the neck of the can and fix it there. If the mechanism does not fit into the neck - use a file and slightly sharpen the corners.
2. As a result, the clock mechanism must pass through the neck of the can. By the way, if the clock mechanism is tightly fixed in the neck of the jar, you will not need glue in the future.
3. On the can, along its circumference, add a timeline. For this you can use self-adhesive paper (just cut out the necessary figures from it and paste on the jar). You can also use a sticky tape (make a number from small pieces). Or, using a stencil and a special composition (paste for etching glass - how to do this you can read here). In the example, the bank marked 3, 6, 9 and 12 hours, but you can make the timeline on your own (for example, mark 8, 12, 1 and 5 - which corresponds to the beginning of the working day, the beginning and the end of the lunch break, the end working day - the only thing, place them in the necessary places, in accordance with the timeline).
4. Take the hands from the clockwork mechanism and use the pliers to bend them at a right angle. Make sure that the arrows do not intersect together when assembled.
5. Collect it all together. First, connect the hands with the clockwork. Then place the clock in the neck of the can. If necessary, use a super-glue and glue the ends of the mechanism to the inside of the neck of the can. Please note, the mechanism should be slightly recessed in the jar so that the lid can easily close.
All is ready! You can still fantasize a bit and add, for example, LED lighting, so that you can see the time at night. Put it on the table and enjoy. And do not forget to put the battery in the clock.
