Decals have long been a well recognized method for adding an extra decorative note to the glass covers of wall and shelf clocks. Originally echoing designs that might be etched on glass, these decals quickly took on a life and style of their own, and have become decorative staples on clocks both simple and fine.

Here are seven decal designs for your application to the inside of the glass on small wall and shelf clocks. Reproductions of original designs, the decals are gold in colour and very simple to apply. The centre section may be cut out before applying if desired.

NOTE: Decals D1, D9 and the regulator decals are made to peel off without the use of water. All others must be soaked in water ?rst and then applied to glass.

  • D1 3" x 4-¼" (76 x 108 mm):
  • D2 2-¼" x 3" (57 x 76 mm):
  • D4 2-½" x 5" (64 x 127 mm):
  • D5 1-¾" x 4-¼" (44 x 108 mm):

  • D8 2-¼" x 5-¼" (57 x 133 mm):
  • D9 5" x 5" (127 x 127 mm):
  • D10 3-½" x 4" (87 x 102 mm):

Regulator Decals

Use these decals in large regulator clocks. The left decal is 2-1/8" x 4-5/8" (54 x 117 mm), and the right decal is 2-1/4" x 6-1/8" (57 x 156 mm). The rules are 12" (305 mm) long and 3/8" (9.5 mm) wide.

Music Box Movements

Shut Off Lever:

These spring-powered music box movements are made by Sankyo. They are of heavy duty construction and encased in a plastic cover. Melodies use up to 18 notes, with playing times from 2 minutes 30 seconds to 3 minutes 30 seconds.

Height 1-¼" (32 mm)
Length of key protruding from bottom ½" (12.7 mm)
Length 2-7/16" (61 mm)
Width 2" (50.8 mm)
While a jewellery box kit is just one application of the music box movements listed here, there are many other applications, particularly in children's toys, which can be fun to make, and even more fun for kids. A shut-off lever is available as an optional extra, which can be fitted to the movement. When the lever is used, the plastic

cover must be permanently removed - we also recommend removal of the wooden base, which is shipped attached to the movement. This permits the movement to be bolted directly onto the bottom of the case, for a much improved sound.
