Clock keys

Recommended Posts

Hi not posted in this section until now but have moved sideways from interest in watches to small mechanical clocks.

I have quite few alarm type clocks of various vintages and very little if any value but need to source keys for them. They are the type that screw on and I am missing various lengths. Does anyone know where they can be sourced. I can find lots of the square "tube" type but have been unsuccessful so far in finding any screw on types.

 

Cheers

Kevin

If the thread is standard, they are not too difficult to fabricate if you get stuck. :)

Hi Wrench what would you use to fabricate it though

This sort of thing any good: Alarm keys

Or Alarm clock keys

Or Keys

Yes probably assuming they are the screw on type and not the internal  square drive type which is the problem, identifying the correct type.

I used a bit of 1/4" diameter mild steel bar, drilled and tapped it, and cut a slot on the end and soldered in a shaped 12mm repair washer so it looked like the key on the right in the picture.
