    Default Proper click spring for Hermle 351-020?

    I think a Timesavers #11617 is the correct one. They don't give all of the dimensions. They just say "Hermle Style Click Spring 1-1/32" Long". I expect that someone on here has replaced many of these and knows if this Timesavers spring fits. Attached are pictures and dimensions.

    Luke, I would buy both of the ones offered by Timesavers. They are only $1.00 each. Surely one will work

    Yes and you might want to buy a few other things as well. If the total is under like $7 they charge you a fee ontop of that

    You mean $20.00, or they add something like a $3.00 processing fee.
    A man with a clock always knows the time. A man with two clocks is never sure.

    I should just buy the Hermle click spring assortment plus enough other parts to get above the small order fee. I'm a cheapskate and I rarely work with Hermle movements. Two click springs might be a lifetime supply

    I'm a hobbyist. I usually get to pick which clocks I repair. This is what I call a relative repair. A relative called and said "My clock went BOINK and won't wind anymore" Now I'm fiddling around with a Hermle movement

    You've probably been in this situation. You really don't want to work on this clock, but, don't want to refuse and have unhappy relatives.

    The really unfortunate fact is that there are no longer any professional clock repair shops near me.

    I usually just pay the 3 dollar processing fee if I am forced to by from Timesavers. I find 3 bucks is cheaper than spending 20 on stuff I don't need.

    For all of the reasons mentioned here. I just make my own out of spring steel.

    David, do you use old mainsprings to make these, or some other source of material?

    Jim, I have used worn out hacksaw or bandsaw blades, as well as steel banding that is used to strap stuff to pallets. I have some 0.015" and 0.020" banding. My local industrial supply shop gives me some stuff that they normally discard.

    I don't have access to the metal strapping, but I do have a few old hacksaw blades. I never thought of recycling them. Great tip, thanks David.

    An update for anyone finding this thread later. I bought the timesavers # 32347 12 piece click spring assortment for hermle. It had the replacement that I needed. I decided that It was worth a few more dollars to just get this clock fixed with a single parts order. Total cost was about $15. And, I now have a supply on hand for the next hermle. I'd thought of making one from a scrap piece of spring steel. Cutting & grinding a tiny piece of spring steel or spend $15?? The $15 option won. If you consider the labor involved, the timesavers assortment is probably the cheaper option.
