When I purchased this mechanism I knew nothing about the American "I" shaft hand configuration. I tried everything to get the existing minute hand on the mechanism and finally did a google search on why my clock hands wouldn't stay on the mechanism. There was no shaft nut included with the mechanism hands so I had no idea that I needed one. There was no documentation with the mechanism so I had to learn this all on my own.

You should have gotten a little plastic bag of hardware, which includes two options for nuts to hold the minute hand in place - an open one compatible with the addition of a second hand and a solid one for applications that don’t use a second hand. If you didn’t get that bag of hardware then that was a mistake and I’ll be happy to send you a replacement.
The movement is a modified Quartex Q-80. A selection of alternate hands is available from klockit.com.
Honestly very disappointed. I thought this was a a solution to a solid state relay. but.... 1st: I dont think I received the right power board. My version says v0.6? There are no images, instructions and the wrong number of components. All of the pictures have version 2.2 or higher. The only pictures online of this particular pcb was on easyeda. 2nd: I have 2 screws and terminals that don't match the pcb i was sent. 3rd: This board is thin and seems to look very cheap. I honestly could have hand soldered a better board on protoboards. I am wary of plugging in any amount of power into this device due to the poor labeling and lack of instructions.
I was really hoping this was a quality part but you get what you paid for... or less.

I'm sorry you're disappointed.
There is a documentation link on the lower right side of the product page here on Tindie. It goes to a PDF that has complete assembly instructions.
I'm not sure what you're seeing in the pictures, but they are of the 0.2 board, not 2.2.
The board is thin because it's OSHPark's 0.8 mm service. I chose that specifically because it has 2 oz copper instead of 1 oz, which increases the current capacity of the power tracks on the board.
The kit comes with two 4-40 machine bolts and nuts that are intended to be used to attach the heat sinks to the triacs.
You should have received two each of 330Ω, 360Ω and 39Ω resistors, two ceramic caps, the aforementioned heat sink mounting parts, the two triacs, the two heat sinks, four fiber washers (to go on the pegs of the heat sinks to protect the board from the edges on the sinks), two optoisolated triac drivers, three .25" QC terminals, and a 3 position screw terminal. If any parts were missing, I'd be happy to replace them if you'd contact me,
