Ever find yourself wondering what time it is, but no one knows? Here's the solution to your problem, and of course, it involves bikes.
Read on for a tutorial on how to make a brake rotor clock!All you need to make this you probably have in your house, but even so, it isn't expensive if your missing something.Materials
Epoxy or other glue
A few pieces of hardware
First off, take the clock apart, so that all you have are the hands and mechanical part of the clock.
Clock disassembled and rotor
Next, mix up your epoxy, or use another type of glue. Apply it to one side of the rotor where the clock will attach, and stick them together. Once the glue is dry, you can reattach the hands.
My clock did not have wall mounts on the mechanical part, so I just made it a desk clock. To make it stand up, I went over to Home Hardware and bought 2 bolts, 2 nuts, and 2 washers (1/4 inch). Just put the bolts through the holes of the rotor, throw on the washer, and tighten down the nut.
And there you have it! Your vary own brake rotor clock, and it doesn't take very much time at all.
