I wanted a workshop clock that was different to the table saw blade clocks that are sold by Craftsman, yet remained easy to build and cost less than $60. I settled on a Giant 6X life size Caliper. This is not a exact replica instead it’s a simple to build clock that looks a little like the standard engineers caliper. The overall length of this caliper is 60 inches but you can build it to whatever length you like. I suggest you print the clock housing first so that if you want to make it smaller you can then measure the cutout and reduce your main shaft down to fit. This was printed on an Anycubic Chiron which has a 400mm x 400mm bed so again you may have to reduce the size of the main housing in Cura or cut it in half in Meshmixer to fit on a smaller bed size. If you do reduce the size you will need to find a smaller clock module « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!
