What to do with all those extra Megabloks? Make a clock! Hope you enjoy this instruction.
Check out the video at PHOENIXWALLCLOCKS.COM if you want more details of making Mega Bloks clock.
Step 1: Organize your creation
Arrange the blocks in a mold. HDPE does not adhere to anti-adhesive surfaces or aluminum. I have not tested other surfaces. The pan in the picture is the bottom of a mold 14 “aluminum cheap, it was about 1mm thick. A pie or cake pan will work fine for this as well.
I cut some blocks to fill important gaps in the board.
Step 2: Heat to Perfection
Preheat oven to 260 ° c.The melting temperature of pure HDPE is 300 ° F. I started the lower range and triggered the heat to 300 ° F for 2 hours.Keeping control of the blocks, they probably start to melt until the oven is 300 ° F. This is because the oven temperature is probably close but not precise.
Color and other chemicals added to the blocks during manufacture can affect the melting temperature. If some blocks can not melt at 300 ° F. Go above 300 ° F may cause the blocks to burn.
Step 3: Just a little cleaning and trim
I did not go above 300 ° F for that clock. Cool the blocks in the mold on a level surface in order to minimize deformation.The blocks will be slightly distorted. If there is no or texture in the mold it would have been printed on the blocks.
Blocks that do not melt were cut with a handsaw; Tabs where the cut with wire cutters. The mold surface will become the clock face.
The rear (not dial side) can be scraped with a plane of the hand, the edges may be planed with a block plane to obtain a relatively smooth surface.
Step 4: Chanel your inner finishing move
Now, the clock can be attached to the back of your choice, no support, border, no border, etc .. Your imagination is the limit.
The clock mechanism is sold with a variety of shaft lengths, this allows a wide variety of thickness of the clock.
I did my own clock hands strips of ebony, but the clock hands should be proportional to the face of the clock.
