*these are the stem parts that go thru the hole in the record, you want the shortest one so that the hands are close to the surface.



*this is what the whole mechanism looks like, it usually takes one aa battery...

you can get them at a.c. moore, or pear arts, if you live near boston.  you could probably order them online as well.  i think they ran around $6.

we charged according to the record, if it was a 12" picture record, it could go between  $30 to $40, colored vinyl was around $15 to $20, and so on and so on... it was sort of hard to figure it out, it took us some time to figure out what people would pay and how we could cover the cost of the mechanism, the record, and how much time was involved.

we sold them at the punk rock craft fair that took place this past december at mass college of art here in boston.  we also sold bags and magnets, but the records were the most popular.  it was way fun... even though we had to get up at the butt-crack of dawn.

Hi.  The clocks are great!!

I was wondering what you did to be able to hang them up?  Or are they supposed to be propped up?  

Thanks

*there's a little tabbie on the back of the mechanism that you can use on a tack or a nail.  although i 'spose you could prop them up on a mantel and that might be cool!

i'm really glad you guys like em.  i think everybody should make them because there are so many sad little records out there that aren't being appreciated!

Now, my story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" 'cause the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles…

1. take everything off of the mechanism (hands, bolts, etc.)

2. screw (twirl) the record onto the surface of the mechanism.  it might be a little tight, you might have to scrape a tiny bit off the inside of the hole, but careful cause you want the record to fit tightly onto the stem of the mechanism.

3. put the hands, bolts, etc. back onto the mechanism in reverse order.  it's imp. that you get them in the right order, and sometimes you might have to adjust them so that the clock actually works.  if you put them on too tight, the clock won't go and you'll be like "what the heck?"  like we were.

4. insert battery

5. tell time

*you can also add numbers, we saw this one online that had the #'s melted in, so it was in 3-d.  woah.

Your record clocks look great. I shopped at the PRFM but I think I must have missed your table! Man, you have a great selection of colored vinyl. Care to share your source? I don't blame you if not... Wink

my partner in sales and i found the vinyl all over, mostly in cambridge... it was a little bit of a challenge to find cheap colored vinyl, but we dug a little and came up with some... also, her awesome roomate gave us some really cool old-school hardcore an punk records to use.  we had joan jett, quiet riot, the byrds, she kept the billy idol one for herself, and i still have a prince "purple rain" 7" that i can't part with.

Half Price Books usually has a good selection of reasonably priced vinyl. Sometimes you can find albums at Goodwill or Salvo and definitely keep your eye out for garage sales.

Sometimes Library's purge their old goods a few times a year. If you're lucky you'll find some vinyl there. The library here has a great collection but I'm not sure if they part with them?

Love the groovy (sorry for the pun, but I couldn't resist) clocks. For those of you looking for clock parts, check out clockparts.com. I make clocks from antique ceiling tin and I buy from them. Their prices are much better than craft stores and you have a ton of choices.

you can always fake coloured vinyl like i do by spraying it with glossy spray paint (cut out a circle of paper to protect the label).

it's cheating, but it looks spifty.

If your walmart's craft section doesn't suck, the aisle with the wood craft stuff should have clock parts.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who says "butt-crack of dawn"... though usually it's ***-crack of dawn.   Shocked

I don't know if they have these any where else but where I live we have what is called a peddler's mall. Great, Great Great Place. You can find anything from old antique furniture and clothes to records and a lot of great recyclable junk. I have found tons of records there and most of them are only like 50 cents to a dollar. Some of those people don't even know what they have they are just selling them. I have found some great steals like Queens A night at the opera for $1! But there's no way i am making that into a clock, i still listen to it Smiley
