Its a Dave Ramsey Christmas... I was lamenting over what to get for my father-in-law for christmas, the budget was only $8... normal budget was only $5 but I was under budget on some others and was able to increase here.
Still it was hard. So it hit me on the way out the door when I was checking the time... he likes tools. A tool clock. So I went to micheals with my 50% coupon and paid only $3.50 for battery operated clock mechanics that comes with the arms and everything.
Then I stopped at Harbor Freight and found the cheapest circular saw blade I could find right about $3. Then I picked up a little pack of washers, I was lucky to find a small container with mulitple sizes.. including very large, like a half dollar.
I went home and started assembly. Fumbling through, ad-libing, and using washers to make hole smaller and a couple of smaller ones to fit inside the hole so it won't wiggle, (my husbands idea).
And a sharpie to write in the numbers, they have number kits you can buy but I thought that a sharpie was just as good.
I don't have a working camera anymore so that is when I had an ah-ha moment and went online to get a picture and found instructions... just google "make a saw blade clock"
