The Making Steps
- Measure and mark the centre line with the pencil. Pay attention on how you draw. It is important to make sure that you erase the lines carefully and decide the centre point correctly.
- Drill the wood plate using your pencil as the sign. You can use electronic drill to do that.
- It is time to set the clock kit. The first thing to do is to set the wood plate on top of battery part, thus the white protruding part suits into the drilled hole. The purpose is that to prick up on the face of the clock. Then set the metal washer on the protruding white mechanism. If it suits, you should screw on the nut to make it stronger. Set the clock hands onto the nut and accomplish it with the topper piece.
- It is closely over. For your information, Gorilla Glue is good to apply when the surface is wet. Therefore, wet a towel and lubricate along the outer edge, precisely area for the clasp belt.
- Apply the gorilla glue to the lower half perimeter outside of the plate. Arrange the belt position around the plate and glue it. Press tightly, we suggest to dry overnight for the best result.
- Put the AA Battery to the clock mechanism on the back of the clock. Make sure that you place it correctly.
