Following on from the page on the 2998 Hour hands. At the moment I am just showing all the variations. I hope to pull it all together later.
All minute hands are 15.4 mm long, and have a thin lume line. This line appears in different lengths, and slightly different shapes at the ends. (measurements are open to error, but made with a vernier. The error is from not wanting to push the vernier against the tip of the loose hands, nor dismantle hands from a watch.
Lets start with hands I believe correct.
Now lets see some service hands:
The thing is, we cannot divine the service hand simply by looking at the shape of the lume. As I said these two pages are simply a gathering of data. I like to zoom in on minute details, then back out and include the rest. So this page really is a wide open look into my brain as I try to work out the hands for 2998s!
And now hands for consideration:
These next two photos demonstrate the difference between a curved hand and a flat hand:
So there we have data. In my next post I will put it all together.
