    Hi all.
    These two clocks are missing the knobs to adjust the hands.
    The Ansonia has a square arbor and the New Haven's is round with two flattened sides.
    I also need a nut for the N.H. and two for the Ansonia.
    Where can I get these parts and how can I tell the thread sizes. I've never dealt with such fine threads.
    Thanks,
    Carlos

    The hand setting arbors are not threaded, they are just shafts for push-on knobs. You can buy a selection of such handsets from Timesavers or other suppliers.

    If you mean the winding knobs, these are indeed screw-threaded and you can also buy a selection of alarm winders from the same sources.

    And winding shafts are often left hand threaded.

    Thanks. JDT. I'll look at Time Savers for the hand sets.
    shutterug, thanks. You are correct, they are left hand thread.
    What I also need are:
    The bottom of the Ansonia is missing two nuts.
    The back plate of the New Haven is missing one nut.
    And I can't tell the size and thread on these.
