    I lost the hand nut to my clock movement. I bought a New old 1980's Kieninger H movement ( it says Hamilton but has the Kieninger mark). I measured the outside of the shaft and it measured .096" with is 2.43mm. So maybe a 2.5mm will fit? I can't find one everywhere, any suggests?

    Timesavers sells a selection of a variety of differently sized hand nuts. Probably one of them will fit.

    Or you could find a smaller one and re-thread it.

    Kieninger isn't too bad: if you know someone who fixes clocks they'll likely have something that'll fit.

    What you do _not_ want to lose is an Ingraham hand nut: the kind that's shaped like an hourglass. I've survived thus far without needing one, but that nut has a thread that matches absolutely nothing and the original tap is sitting in a drawer in the Ark of the Covenant.

    Suggestions are welcome.
