      A good variety can be found on eBay or Etsy. When you are buying the clock mechanism get a high torque one made for the bigger clocks. Also the hands are usually made to work with different sizes, 12, 16 18...30 inches etc

      You can Google which size hands and clock motor you need. I made a huge clock and went thru klockit.com. They have everything you need there. You also have to make sure that the stem that the hands attach to is long enough for the thickness of your clock.
