The half wrench clock I like – where did you get all those 12mm wrenches and how did you cut them?

The wrench clock is the winner. Would look great in every garage/shop or mancave or in my opinion, in the middle of my Living-room. Just don’t think the wife would let that fly.
Well done.

Hoping to get some time in the near future to make some clocks and your designs are getting bookmarked for inspiration, many thanks for posting them.

thank you for all the positive comments.

The wrenches were sourced at a local used tool store here in Calgary. The wrenches were cut in half using a metal cutting band saw, and the ends polished with a grinder. that way I only require 6 wrenches for all 12 times.

I’m a sucker for the rebel alliance ones. I have some rounds at home right now ready to be made into clocks. What clock hardware did you use? I couldn’t find any at the craft store the other day.

All clock parts are sourced from Lee Valley. They are located in Calgary, so it is easy. They also have online shopping.
