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.

*i know there have been previous threads about record clocks, but i thought i would share the pics from the punk rock craft fair we did this past december...

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?

Yes, I also would be interested in participating in or attending the punk rock flea market.  once info becomes available on the next one, please post it.
