Clock parts for DIYers

This is a follow up to Kevin’s post on Recomendo regarding using DST adjusting wall clocks. If you have old clocks with mechanical, electrical, or non-functional movements that either don’t work you are tired of correcting for daylight savings time, Klockit.com has a variety of quartz replacement movements for almost any size set of clock hands. These are fairly reasonable cost, quartz crystal based movements with a WWVB receiver that adjusts for DST.

They also have a variety of other clock products from movements, clock hands, plans, to complete kits. I’ve bought their movements to replace old mechanical movements that were irreparable including one with a faux pendulum so that the pendulum swings but the clock still keeps quartz-based time.
