I am very nearly equipped for building my very first clock and I am finally ready to begin my search for stock materials with which to build it. I am told that Brass alloy 3532, once known as "clock brass" is the best for the job. The only problem is that I have no idea where to get it. I have searched online, but I haven't come up with anything. If anyone has a source, or knows the next best alternative, it would surely make my day. I am also wondering what grade of tool steel would be recommended for arbor material.
