If you are replacing a movement on an old clock it is still advisable to purchase new hands. It will give the clock a nice fresh look and it assures a good fit. If you plan to use the existing hands with the new movement the minute hand must be the "i" shaft style that is held on with a little nut.
Hands are often not interchangeable from brand to brand so it is cheaper to purchase new hands when buying the clock movement rather than discover that the old hands don't fit and have to place a new order for them.
Firstly - Gentle does it-do not overtighten the nuts- it will damage the clocks.
Janine's tip. Remember to check that there will be enough room between the clock dial and the clock lens when repairing or making a clock that has a protective glass on the front. You need 12mm clearance to prevent the hands from touching the glass.
