Steve, now doing final assembly on this clock, and discovered that the hour and minute hands are an extremely loose fit on their respective shafts. I printed them with 14 perimeters so I could print all 3 hands at the same time. Could that be the problem? The second hand fits fine however. Thanks

I noticed loose hands on some of my clocks also. Nothing changed, except possibly a different roll of filament. The crazy gear clocks have files named <hand_name>_1.stl that are a little bit tighter and <hand_name>_2.stl that are the tightest.
I added them to the large silent desk clock. It also needed the retainer that fits around the Silent Shield Clock Controller to make it appear the same size as the CNC Shield V4. It is called base_retainer_upper.stl and base_retainer_lower.stl. You can find them by expanding the section labeled "Object Parts".
just reprinted hour and minute hands with 5 instead of 14 perimeters and still a very loose fit, so loose that shaft cannot drive hands
