From old gramophone records you can makeNice wall clock with their own hands, and with minimal financial costs. But I still have to work hard, and a lot of time will pass away. Although it all depends on how you will make the watch from the records with your own hands. There are a lot of options, among them there are both simple and rather complex, we will consider both.
Ways of making clocks from plates
1. Just put the mechanism. The easiest way, the clock and the hands are attached to the plate. The mechanism is glued from the back side, the arrows are withdrawn through the central hole using a bushing. The result will be so-so. Although if there is a picture on the plate, it will be much more beautiful (you can paste the picture, you can also apply figures). 2. We give a simple form. The method is almost the same as the first, but before installing the mechanism, the plate is given an original shape (heart, kettle, bat, etc.). Cut carefully and slowly - do not forget that the material melts from the heat. 3. Cutting the dial. Digging of the numbers on the plate is performed using a hand-held jigsaw or boron-machine with a special nozzle (the second way is much better). Before starting work, the dial is drawn with a pencil and the pattern is already cut. It should be noted that this method of manufacturing watches from vinyl records is already quite complex, from the first time it may well not work. And from the second, too. And from the third, as you have the patience and hone your skills with the tool. 4. Cutting out complex shapes. This method is super complicated, so you do not have enough experience with jigsaw and boron-machine to take on it, just spoil the records. It is better to practice on plywood or some other unnecessary piece of thin material. 5. Decoupage. How to do decoupage can read more here. But we believe this way of making watches from records is not the most successful. The thing is that the plate itself is lost under the drawing. You can just as easily use a regular sheet of plywood and cheap plastic, it is not necessary to use a plate for this.
