Q:
I am after a replacement for a Quartz DM-8810-1 Shontek movement.
Is this something you stock, as I bought a different quartz movement from Maplin and it was compatible.

Thanks.
Asked by: Tom Barber
A:
Hi Tom, It is difficult to say if this would be suitable, it is likely that it may be similar but depending on what the clock movement is being placed into would depend how accurate the replacement would need to be.

Q:
Can i use this mechanism without the large seconds hand ?
Asked by: Wayne
A:
Hi Wayne, The issue with not using the red second hand is this prevents the hour and minute hand from coming off the spindle. The only way around this would be to keep the center of the second hand and remove the parts from either end. This means the center circle can be put onto the end of the spindle but as the long part of the hand has been removed it wouldn't appear to show the seconds.

Q:
Making a glass clock, existing movement I have states it's not suitable to hang if clock weighs any more than 500gms - weight could stop clock. Mine are a bit heavier. Finding it impossible to find another type of fixing so would your clock movements be ok to hang a 500-750 gm weight clock?
Thank you.
Asked by: Jeni Smallridge
A:
Hi Jeni, Unfortunately we don't have any information regarding what weight these clock movements can take. However it is very likely that the amount of weight that can be placed on the spindle is very limited, and as such I do not suspect that these movements could handle that clock face weight. The clock faces which we sell weight less than 100 grams.

Q:
Can I cut ? the second hand to make it shorter as I need it to be 90mm to fit the clock.
Thank you.
Asked by: Karen
A:
Hi Karen, Technically you cut possibly cut the end down to make it fit your required space although we haven't tried this our self. You may not be able to get a clean cut however as the plastic is fairly stiff.

Q:
If I was to cut the hands down to fit in a clock would it affect the clock mechanism? Thanks James
Asked by: James
A:

Hi James, It shouldn’t affect the mechanism as long as the cut the end that doesn’t fit onto/into the spindle.

Q:
hi have a widdop bingham clock mechanism needs replacing.It has reference number
TW7978 on it.
Can you help please ?
Asked by: mike boulton
A:

Hi Mike, It is very unlikely that this movement would be identical to the one you need to replace. However as we don’t have any details regarding the original movement it is very difficult to give any further advise. In theory, if the movement fits into the housing and through the centre hole then it may be that it can be used as an alternative movement.

Q:
Hello
I have never replaced the mechanism on my clock , the mechanism on my clock looks the same as the one you sell. But the hands on my clock are smaller. Would I be able to use the existing hands with the mechanism you sell.
Regards Maureen Brett.
Asked by: Maureen Brett
A:

Hi Maureen, It is difficult to say if the hands on your clock mechanism would fit onto the one we stock. It’s very lightly that although they look similar the size of the holes on the hand and the way the second hand fixes onto the movement may be different.

Q:
I am making a clock on canvas max hour hand size will be 75mm is this suitable
Asked by: dave hart
A:

Hi Dave, I have just doubled checked and the measurement for the hour hand of 65mm that we list is correct, this includes the circle section as well, so this movement should be fine for the length of the hour hand.

Q:
Hi being a regular gardener could I get the movements for outdoor use regards
Asked by: Stuart Allen
A:

Hello Stuart, Unfortunately this is the only movement we stock. However if you housed the movement in a waterproof enclose with the spindle coming through this you could then have the clock outside. The enclosure could also then form the clock face.

Q:

Asked by: Alanna

Hi Alanna, the movement makes the standard ticking noise as the second hand moves.

Q:
What are the diameters of the hour and second hand shafts please?
Asked by: John Squire
A:

Rita,


I’ve just got a clock movement out and done some measuring, please be aware that I’ve only measured one, so whilst these figures will be indicative of all movements, there may be a small amount of variation.


The inside of the hour hand is measuring 4.9mm and the shaft tapers from 5.0mm to 5.1mm. The inside of the second hand is 2.95mm and the shaft tapers from 3.17mm to 3.24mm. I’m unable to measure the second hand as it is inside the assembly, but I suspect the pin that the hand fits on to is 0.8mm, but please remember this is not measured.


Best regards

Q:
hello

We've ordered a lot of these mechanisims sets from yourselves in the past. Unfortunatly with classrroom use we have run out of the fixings and attachments to the mechanisims (the hands, fixings, washers etc). We still have plentry of the clock mechnaisms left. Is it possible to purchase the fittings separtatly from yourseves rather than full kits with the mechanisims.

regards

E Jackson
Asked by: E. Jackson
A:

Unfortunately the fixings are brought with the clock movements and we are unable to purchase additional fixings in. As such we can only supply them in the packs with the movements.

Asked by: Ernie Stammers

We stock a standard clock movement, as such I wouldn’t be able to say if it would be a suitable replacement for that specific movement as I was unable to find any details regarding the movement you have.

Q:
I want to replace a Kienzle quartz clock mechanism, which is rather finer than the modern one I bought (which I was able to use on another clock). Do you stock this kind of item? I'm not sure of the measurements. Do you have a shop that I could visit?
Asked by: Valerie
A:

This is currently the only clock movement we stock, as such we don’t have a movement that would be suitable. Unfortunately we don’t have a shop that you could visit either.

Q:
Can you please tell me whether it is complicated (and expensive) to make a deadbeat minute hand clock (where minute hand moves like a second hand in 60 second intervals)?

I was wondering whether using cogs/wheels to bring about this effect - with one of these clock sets.
Asked by: Stuart
A:

It is difficult to say if this would be complicated and how expensive this would be to do. The mechanism is located within the housing, and as such this would need to be opened up to allow you to make alterations to how it works. After a quick search there seems to be little information on creating these so I would suspect they could be difficult to create.

Q:
Please could you tell me if the mechanism is heavy duty? The clock I have is 80cm diameter and the minute hands is 35mm long made from lightweight aluminium. Is the mechanism strong enough to carry this?
Asked by: John Millward
A:

Our clock movements use plastic hands which weight a maximum of 6g’s, as such it wouldn’t be advisable to use components heavy than this. The clock mechanism can be used with the MDF clock faces which are 170mm in diameter, as such a clock face of 80cm may place a lot of strain on the spindle of the movement.

Answered by: Michael Lockhart

Q:
Please could you tell me the total length of the spindle on this clock movement, WITH the seconds hand fitted?
Is the fixing nut 2mm thick?
I am trying to replace a quartz clock movement and have very limited space. The clock face is 5mm thick and there is a 13mm space from the front of the clock face to the glass. I am prepared to add packing washers to move the movement further away from the rear of the face, but need to know that everything will fit properly. I look forward to your guidance.
Cheers.
Asked by: John
A:

The spindle is roughly 21mm including the second hand, and the nut is 2.3mm thick. The thickness of the clock movement body itself is 15.8mm. So the total for the body and spindle is roughly 36.8mm.

Q:
We are running a science & tech day with our guides (ages 10 to 14) on 28 Feb and are looking to make CD clocks and also fizz bot robots.

Are you able to confirm these clock mechanisms are suitable for CDs please.

In addition I was wondering if you able to offer us any discounts for quantity purchases of both the cd mechanisms and the fizz bots ?

Many thanks
Ann Fairthorne
Asked by: Ann Fairthorne
A:

Yes these would be fine to use with CD’s to create the clock face. However I am afraid we cannot offer any further discount on either of these two products. Each product does have a bulk buy option which reduces the individual cost.

Q:
have a 12inch wall clock witha faulty movement, identified as - Chigi Tekei Co Ltd no(0) jewel withthe following infoi in the battery compartment 2031V and 19601 do you have a sugestion as an replacement. thank you, this unit also drives a pendulum
Asked by: harry
A:
Lots of the clock movements are made to the same specification possibly even in the same factory in China. There are some minor variations such as shaft length and the size of the hands. All you really need to check is that the mounting hole in your face is 8mm and then I think the unit will fit fine. It of course doesn't have a pendulum on it, but if your happy to not have that functionality then it will do the job.
