I’m looking at making several simple clocks, for Christmas presents.

What suppliers do you use, or can you recommend?
Links would be helpful and greatly appreciated!

Thank you, in advance for your input and help!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

I’ve used klockit.com a few times. Seem to be reasonable. Copy and paste the link below.

I’ve checked out the site and it looks quite promising.
They have a huge selection….
Looks like my brain will be working overtime to make some decisions!!!

Again, thanks for taking the time to read and respond!!!

I got an email from them recently. In their email they are having a sale. Using the link provided by others above and using the promo code GIFTS at checkout could get you 15% your order. Sale ends today though

Run, rabbit run. Dig that hole, forget the sun. And when at last your work is done, don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one.

kdc68,
I believe that I am a day late….
But not a dollar short.

Too bad that I don’t have time to use the discount code.
Thanks for the tip!!!

Bummer…Sign up to receive their emails…they will send out discount codes and sales when they have them. You get a discount code on your birthday as well. I bought from them a few times over the years. Good customer service and products.

If you have a salvation army near by, you can usually pick up an entire clock for around $1 or $2, or find them at yard sales…then just take it apart, and use the works in your new clock.
I’ve done that a number of times.

Klockit is an excellent supplier, but if you want a clock on a budget, you can find good faces and mechanisms by buying clocks from a second hand store such as Goodwill…..

I’m with all the above posts. http://www.klockit.com/ when I need quality or quantity. Dollar stores or thrift shops when I need cheap and/or fast.
