I have a great idea of making a clock for our football coach that looks
like our football helmet. I have never made a clock. I so far have
determined that I want the clock to be at least 36" in diameter. The
shape of the helmet would be cut from a cabinet grade 3/4" plywood.
and looked at the clock parts that they have. I do not know what size
of mechanism that I need, what size number, or hands! Is there a rule
to follow? The biggest numbers I saw at Michael's were 13/16", they
seemed like they would be too small. Can anyone offer any suggestions
or help. Thanks

Make your own.
EVERY THING THAT HAPPENS STAYS HAPPENED.
For a clock that large I suggest a high torque movement and balanced hands.
I doubt if you'll find anything like that at Michael's.
Take a look at Klockit's web site:
In particular see an example of the balanced hands at:
and the high torque movement at:
You should be able to find other on-line vendors of "clock making supplies"
by doing a Google search.
