C-Cell High Torque Clock Movement #HT2

Attn: The hands for these units will be offered during the checkout process upon hitting the add to cart button.

The powerful C Cell high torque movement is the strongest on the market before getting into the electrical units. They are geared special on the inside of the unit stronger as to take more weight if wanted. The C cell units are stronger than the AA units and would also last longer with the very long hands. The post that is being measured is as described on the above diagram. This is the threaded portion of the movement that goes through the dial face and needs to be long enough to mount the hex nut onto this post, in the front of the dial face. This means the movement is just mounted to the dial and nothing else, then you can put you’re hour hand on, and then the minute hand with its nut.

They have a threaded post diameter of 5/16 and a case dimension of 2-3/4’H x 2-3/16’W x 1’D.

The long hands for these movements are sold separately

C-Cell High Torque Clock Movement #HT2

The powerful C-Cell High Torque Clock Movement is the strongest on the market. There is no stronger battery operated unit than this one. You can make a large clock out of anything such as barn wood, wood barrel tops, whatever. As long as the piece it goes through has a 3/8 hole to mount the C-Cell High Torque Clock Movement to the back, and the post you order is long enough to go through the material.

C-Cell High Torque Clock Movement have a threaded post diameter of 5/16 and a case dimension of 2-3/4'H x 2-3/16'W x 1'D. The hands for these units will be offered during the checkout process upon hitting the add to cart button.

High Torque clock hands

In the first place, use High Torque Clock Hands on larger clock dial diameters. Subsequently, these hands require a high torque clock movement that is run by a battery. Of course, these hands are for the American standard "I" shaft quartz movement that use a battery. The minute hand will have an oblong mounting hole and likewise the hour hand will have a round one. Altogether, the minute hand mounts on the oblong shaft on the clock movement.

Mounting the hands

All in all, mounting the clock hands to the high torque clock movement is easy. First, the hour hand is a friction fit so push it onto the post first. Furthermore, you want to push it down as far as it will go without it touching the clock face. Second is the minute hand which has the oblong hole. Similarly, it mounts on the tip of the oblong shaft of the movement. Finally, secure it with one of the hand nuts.

Hand nuts note

By the same token, there are two hand nuts that come with a new clock movement from clockworks. One is a donut which you use with a second hand and has a hole in it. Likewise, the other nut is a cap nut which has no hole and covers the entire tip of the post. Subsequently, a second hand requires the use of a donut and not a cap nut.

High torque hands checklist

That concludes the mounting procedure. To sum up, some things to look out for: the hour hand is not rubbing the dial and the minute hand is not rubbing the hour hand. Equally important, be certain the minute hand is not rubbing the glass door or anything else during its sweep around. In fact, these hands should be parallel and cannot come in contact with anything. As has been noted, if any of these things occur, the movement will not run. Not to mention, causing frustration in the process.

Sold as a pair with both hour and minute hands. Styles vary depending on length and the longer hands will have a tail with counter balance.
