General Clock Suppliers

These companies carry a wide range of tools, parts, and supplies that cover most needs. Suggest you order a catalog from each business listed. This gives you an instant directory to parts and provides a reminder of where you have already checked. Most suppliers do not have adequate web sites. Also be sure to cruise around all these web sites when you have time. Many of them link to documentation, books, and other free resources that are invaluable!
Specialized Clock Suppliers
These companies specialize in one type or arena of clock repair. You will only need to engage these businesses if you are working within their specialty.
Tools & Shop Supplies

These businesses primarily carry tools and supplies that are specific or very useful to clock repair. Exceptional products noted in review blocks. Many of these companies carry a broader stock so be sure to check them out yourself.
These companies offer specific services that you might find useful.
Please post corrections and add vendors that would improve the clock community as a whole. Please avoid adding businesses that exist on the other AWCI and NAWCC lists unless they add something very distinct like a service or tool that can't be gotten anywhere else. Be sure to include a review. :thumb:

Not sure if this has been posted on here before but the UK suppliers Meadows & Passmore site says "WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING ORDERS FROM NEW CUSTOMERS OR EXISTING CUSTOMERS WHO ORDER VERY INFREQUENTLY". So no longer a source for the hobbyist.

Wow! I would think that means their time is limited.
