Buy clock movements here

""

To convert a clock to fast-time, replace the original movement with a modified Quartex Q80 movement, then connect it to an FCC4 fast clock controller.

The Q80 movement is a standard size, so you can convert almost any clock into a fast clock. Usually it just snaps in! Or you can install it in any clock using the included nut and washer on the threaded shank.

You need one modified movement for each fast-time clock on your layout.

Buy movement kits to do the modification yourself, or choose movements modified and tested, ready to install.

(Alternatively, you can buy movements directly from Klockit, and supply your own resistor and wire for the modification.)

Modifying a clock movement is simple, and takes only 15-20 minutes, (faster if you do several in a batch). You will need to solder to small pins in the clock movement. Please consider your abilities and available tools when choosing clock movements.

These instructions from the user manual can help you decide whether to order clock movements modified and tested, ready to go, or as kits with parts for you to do the modification.

First read about clocks, then come back here to order the movements you need.

Look at alternate clock hands at the bottom of this page to decide if you want different hands than those I normally include with movements.

Alternate clock hands

Each movement comes with one set of #66927 hands (a 3½" minute hand) for a time ring 7" in diameter, but you may specify shorter hands if you have a smaller clock.

This photo shows the four hand sizes and styles I offer (Klockit has more), along with rulers (not exact size) to help judge the length. You can snip off a short portion of the minute hand if it is too long.



If you prefer hands other than the #66927, select from the Choose alternate clock hands list below and click Add to Cart. There is a 1¢ charge for alternate hands because the shopping cart doesn't allow items with no price.

You may choose one alternate set of hands for each movement you order.
