The hardware store. Or if you're adventurous---the thrift store. Just buy a clock that works and rip it apart Smiley

ohj i dont think i could do that.. i would be worried about messing it up :/

i will check out a hardware store.. i really dont want one with metal hands, i want something not too "normal".. like gold hands or something, since it is a craft project, but if thats what i have to result to thats fine..

I just got some really cheap clock mechanism things from ebay (UK)
US ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/5-x-CD-Clock-Mechanisms-Movements-Black-Red-Hands_W0QQitemZ8229473257QQcategoryZ75576QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem might be useful - appears there are better deals for clock parts on the UK site tho - good for any British lurkers, but not so good for you Sad

I don't know where you are, but this is my Australia experience:
Don't buy a cheap clock to rip up, many are glued and stuck in stupid ways so once they die, they're dead. No fixing.
Some craft stores have, ask around.
Electronics shops have! My dad's an electronics teacher so he took me to a shop when I needed one. They will also probably be more helpful than a craft store (ie more expert knowledge)

Craft supply stores often have them:  AC Moore, Michael's, some Joanne's stores.
