Topic tags/keywords: clock mechanism art deco clock mechanism

I am looking to find a mechanism for an art deco mantelpiece clock I am considering making and have a couple of questions:
1) Other than are there any other recommended online stores that sell this kind of stuff?
2) Does anyone know what price I should be paying?

Thanks for your help, Lloyd

Don’t know about prices, but Klockit should have everything you need.

In the lastest issue of wood magazine one of the projects is a mantel clock. At the end of the article in print under materials they list the source of the clock mechanism. I would give you the sorce but I dont have the magazine with me at the moment.

Try going to some Yard Sales.. Buy the old clocks for a buck or two and remove the mechanism.
Can’t get much cheaper that that..:)

Thanks all. I just bought a couple of mechanisms from I also found who were a bit more expensive but had a better selection and range of choices including a little video on how to put the clock together. Under the google sponsored search there was also but I did not look there.

Try this place, my late father-in-law was a jeweler with a hobby of recreating period clocks. He liked this outdit.

I’ve used Kockit before.
