Hello,
I'm looking for chimes to my Dufa wall clock. I can't seem to find them anywhere. I would greatly appreciate any help with locating these. I would also appreciate any advice on possibly making my own as a replacement. Please see attached photos.
Thanks

Is one of the gong rods missing? Otherwise like Kevin stated I'm not sure what you're asking.

Kevin,
Thank you for your reply. I am a total newbie; with this being said, please forgive my lack of knowledge. Of course you are correct. I'm looking for the (rods) that the (hammers) strike.

The chime rod unit is a typical 3 rods bim-bam.
Complete units are still being made and I can furnish a set of 3 rods if required (please PM for further details).

We will not get very far without some good pictures of the gong rods themselves.

I purchased the (clock movement) not sure if that would be the correct term. I purchased it without any rods and or assembly of the rods. I bought it as a backup for a friend's clock I repaired. It works well just need the rods and rod holder assembly. 16281280428944650247014706210059.jpg 16281280722464308522093512957833.jpg

If I'm understanding you correctly, the movement originally pictured is your friend's clock's original movement with the gong block and rods. The movement you recently pictured as the backup movement came by itself, and you're looking for the same gong block and rod assembly for the spares movement, correct?

If this is the case, it'll be a waiting game to find another listing that has the same gong assembly (and likely your chances are higher finding a complete clock instead of just the gong block by itself).

Just my $0.02

My response, last one should have read block, not clock.
