• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

I lost many of the glass domes for my collection of torsion clocks due to an earthquake early Sunday morning the third of Sept.I will be able replace the "standard" size domes but I had two smaller domes and one oval dome,the small domes had a hole in the top and I`m afraid they are going to be hard,if not impossible, to replace.I fear that the oval dome will be hard to find also.Any ideas out there?

Hi Rod,
For domes I suggest you check the normal suppliers, Timesavers, La Rose, Merritts etc.
Then if no success try the specialist dome suppliers.

Rod,
Lew from MileHi Clock ran the clock supply business while being employed by a GLASS COMPANY for many years. He has now retired from the glass company. If there is a way to get a hole in the dome, he will know. I think that he told me once that he had purchased the remaining stock from a dome company as well. He probably has some odd ball sizes that he would be happy to part with.
Best of luck,
