Assemble the clock mechanism following the manufacturer's directions. For the model shown, position the dial on the backing board provided and outline the shaft hole on the board. Remove the dial and bore the shaft hole through the backing board on your drill press. Fix the dial to the backing board with epoxy, making sure the dial is centered between the board's edges. To attach the clock movement (inset), insert the shaft through the shaft hole and the dial, then tighten the nut on the shaft by hand (above). If the shaft protrudes too far from the dial, loosen the nut, remove the movement and slip one or more washers between the movement and the backing board. A number of washers are supplied with most models.
