Do you have mechanism with screw thread size 11 mm?


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Monday, 3 October 2016

    Hi Besmir, Unfortunately we only stock one style of clock movement, the spindle thread is approximately 7.5mm in diameter.

Hello Can you tell me if your clock mechanism is silent or makes a ticking noise? Thanks


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 13 September 2016

    Hi Alanna, the movement makes the standard ticking noise as the second hand moves.

What are the diameters of the hour and second hand shafts please?


  • Posted by Rob Haywood on Monday, 4 July 2016


    I’ve just got a clock movement out and done some measuring, please be aware that I’ve only measured one, so whilst these figures will be indicative of all movements, there may be a small amount of variation.

    The inside of the hour hand is measuring 4.9mm and the shaft tapers from 5.0mm to 5.1mm. The inside of the second hand is 2.95mm and the shaft tapers from 3.17mm to 3.24mm. I’m unable to measure the second hand as it is inside the assembly, but I suspect the pin that the hand fits on to is 0.8mm, but please remember this is not measured.

    Best regards

hello We've ordered a lot of these mechanisims sets from yourselves in the past. Unfortunatly with classrroom use we have run out of the fixings and attachments to the mechanisims (the hands, fixings, washers etc). We still have plentry of the clock mechnaisms left. Is it possible to purchase the fittings separtatly from yourseves rather than full kits with the mechanisims. regards E Jackson


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Thursday, 9 June 2016

    Unfortunately the fixings are brought with the clock movements and we are unable to purchase additional fixings in. As such we can only supply them in the packs with the movements.

I need to replace a mechanism which has a ref HM597 the makers name on this mechanism is Widdop Bingham Will this mechanism fit please.


  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Monday, 6 June 2016

    We stock a standard clock movement, as such I wouldn’t be able to say if it would be a suitable replacement for that specific movement as I was unable to find any details regarding the movement you have.
