    I finally got around to replacing the tiny air cleaner on my K5 and since I had a new piece of junk laying around..............................I made it into a shop clock.

    I like it but the only thing I would change is make the hands bigger and maybe black or red or some other color. Those just look too Fancy to be on a shop clock.:p:

    WWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY back when I made a clock in wood shop we had these really cheap, simple clock mechanisms that ran off a single AA battery. I'm sure if you couldn't find one independent of a clock, a cheap wall clock won't run you more than a couple bucks.

    they sell just the guts..

    You can buy just the "guts" of a clock at any hobby or craft shop--I think Ames stores and maybe even Wal-Mart has them,they only cost 3-5 bucks--I'm thinking of making a few timing chain and gear clocks,since I have several used one lying around,I saw them at a swap meet,they look cool!--good use for the edelbrock air cleaner--it would have rusted in a year or less anyway!!..:crazy:
