hi guys,

just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of cheap clock movements?

so far they seem to be around four quid a pop... but fredaldous.co.uk does 10 for thirty quid so that works out a bit better...

cheers! Grin

Hi Debzy,

don't know if you're still searching for clock bits but here's a couple links i found recently when after the same thing- I can't vouch for either site as I've yet to order so do give feedback if you wind up using them- seems to only be cheap if one buys in bulk which is a bit of a bummer. 

http://www.craftmaterialsupplies.co.uk/acatalog/everglades_Seiko_Quartz_Movements_for_Metal_Hands_8.html

(sorry don't kno how to shorten links!)

also try:

www.hobbicraft.co.uk are good and I've seen some clock pieces in there. They're generally good with prices too.

i've ordered some from clockwiseuk.co.uk so i'll let you guys know what they're like.

they weren't as cheap as 50p unfortunately! what kind of market stall did you buy them from?

Sorry I didn't notice the scouser thing I've never posted on this thing before!

The stall was really random it sold anything and everything - medals, jewellery, old kitchen stuff etc. Thats whats so great about that market, its all full of really cool vintage stuff. and its all cheap too!

Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in the north east!
