Electric clock motor description

Electric clock motors are sold with no hands or hardware. They are sold as a replacement motor for a worn out or broken electric clock. The most popular is the Hansen electric motor in either bottom or rear time set. These were used often in industrial and commercial applications as well as street clocks. The product description will explain how to get the proper hand shaft length on these units.

As far as all those electric mantle clocks with the wooden case made in the early 1900's, no luck. They are no longer made so we do have some alternate movement ideas. This is described in another section and could save the clock from the town dump.

Electric clock hands

If you need hands it may be necessary to modify some long quartz hands to fit. They can be modified to fit the electric unit by filing the minute hand hole. The electric movement hands are hard to come by and usually not available.

It is pretty easy to modify high torque quartz movement hands to fit. They work good on the Hansen electric clock motors. All that is required is to file the minute hand hole some with a needle file. Make it so it will fit on the hand shaft of the Hansen unit, the hour hand will fit fine.
