Spring for Anniversary Clock

New postby cuckoojohnboy » Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:13 pm

Hi - Wondering if anyone can help me with a couple springs I'm in need of for two anniversary clocks. One clock takes a helical spring. The other one takes a flat spring. I've been in touch with all the major clock suppliers but have found nothing. Horolovar used to carry these but no longer.

Is there a way for fashion one that will work? Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Thanks
Johnboy

Hello Johnboy, If you could post some pictures perhaps i can help.The flat spring you refer to is it a torsion spring, very thin say maybe .003 thou thick.
The other spring is this for a mechanical or quartz anniversary clock.

Timesavers should have the suspension spring you need. I just checked and they carry a wide variety. What do you know about the one you need? Do you have a part number, or a thickness?

They are both for quartz movements. I'll try posting a copy of the paper that horolovar supplied me with years ago. The springs I have a not in very good shape - and I'm not too camera literate, but could have my daughter take a few pics if this paper is not sufficient.

It won't let me download the file - says it is too big. I did post a pic on NAWCC.ORG Board though.
