    Default Ladder chain wanted (By: harold bain)

    I have a friend who's looking for some ladder chain for a clock he recently purchased. I presume there may be different sizes (links per foot)? Not sure which size he needs, but I thought I'd check here first if there's even a place to get ladder chain anymore. He said he's checked around and no one seems to have it anymore, outside of one place that wants something like $175. Outrageous.

    Thanks!!
    John

    www.timesavers.com has six sizes of ladder chain, around $15 for a six foot piece. You'll want the wire diameter and the number of links per foot, the latter of which can be derived from measurements of the clock's chain wheel. Their paper catalog (recommended) has actual-size photos of each size of chain.

    Thanks very much!

    I guess I should have checked Timesavers first. He told me he had already checked the various suppliers, but in thinking about it now, I recall him mentioning LaRose and I think they've been out of business for years if I remember correctly. Maybe he meant he tried contacting LaRose, found out they were out of business, and that was it.

    Anyway, thanks again for the information! I really appreciate it! I will let my friend know tomorrow.

    Sincerely,
    John

    Following up on my earlier reply--
    I spoke with my friend today and he clarified that he's already spoken to Timesavers. They told him that the 43(?)-link-per-foot ladder chain has been discontinued and is no longer available (and that's the size he needs). They are only selling the 42-link-per-foot, which won't work for his clock. (Hope he told me the right numbers).
    Soooo...if anyone has another source, I'd appreciate it if you could please let me know.
    Thanks!!

    Whoops! Didn't scroll down far enough. Thanks!! (And thanks, Dick).
    I just called my friend and told him, and gave him the link.
    (Now, if he calls me back and tells me he needs ANOTHER size, I'm going to tell him "ENOUGH!! You're on your own!" ha ha).

    Moderators: You can delete this topic from the thread. (I think that's how it works, right? If I need to do something myself, please let me know).

    Thanks again, everyone!

    This is a dummy response. I don't have one.
    The only truly stupid question is the one you SHOULD have asked - but DIDN'T.

    Me neither.

    (Wasn't sure if this topic of the thread had been deleted yet).

    Anyway, just an update/FYI: Merritt's no longer sells the ladder chain. They said they just haven't gotten around to deleting the entry from their website yet.

    Meanwhile, my friend thinks he has found another source--a machinist or someone who actually makes the chain (and was supposedly the supplier for Merritt's and/or Timesavers, etc). Anyway, he's following up on his own now. I just wanted to let everyone know it's not available from Merritt's anymore.

    Thanks again for all the assistance!
