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 Amazon.com 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

Lloyd,

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 www.klockit.com. I also found www.clockwise.com 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 www.clockparts.com but I did not look there.
Thx

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