    I would like to build or procure a large garden clock, with an electric motor driven movement — synchronous —*for both minute and hour hands. Does anyone know of a supplier of such a creature?

    American Time and Signal could also likely help you.

    After procuring your clock be sure to post a picture. I would love to see it. It is something I wouldn't mind having myself. Also being a landscape contractor and a lover of clocks. I'm dreaming of ways to offer such to my clients.

    I design my own large clock movement and now my target is to make a garden clock of any size. My question is why syncrhonous motor? AC voltage is dangerous in a garden.

    not to be rude, but a roto tiller is dangerous in a garden. Installed by code, it represents no abnormal issues.
