• 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!

Re: 400 Day Schatz clock face screw holder assembly

You don't mention the dimensions. I have some that look like that with ID =.287", OD= .496, thickness =.210" single screw and no hole opposite the screw.

Re: 400 Day Schatz clock face screw holder assembly

Have you thought of making these ??

H/C
All you would need is some round stock a tap and a drill and drill press. You could even part them off on a drill press . I don't do this practice but it could be done. But dimensions are important.

Re: 400 Day Schatz clock face screw holder assembly

Ok - sorry for the delay - the brass collars would be easy to make but the problem is the teeny tiny set screw. I have access to some brass sleeve that would work but the screw is the problem. I currently have the original sleeve but the tip of the original screw is broken off.I've tried to measure the brass collar and I get .196 OD and .110 ID - I'm not sure I'm measuring correctly since I do not have an inside micrometer but it works out to about 7/32"" OD and 1/8" ID with a thickness of 1/32". Sorry I do not have a great micrometer and plan to purchase a better one in the future. The hole opposite the screw is not needed - I believe it was just easier for Schatz to make it that way. I have no idea where I could find a screw this tiny. Thanks so much for all your help.

John

Re: 400 Day Schatz clock face screw holder assembly

John just to confirm that the thickness or height of this assembly is 1/32" ? For sure that is extremely small.

You may want to try Ace hardware for those tiny screws. But I do believe that 1/32 is extremely small. These are the small rings that hold the face to the movement.

You mean the plastic part that goes in the frame of the case.

Re: 400 Day Schatz clock face screw holder assembly

Interesting that even those screws as small as they are are still too big. OP said the thickness of the ring was 1/32" (0.031"), the smallest screw is 0.9mm. I am not familiar with the part he wants. Does the thickness seem right?
