    Hello All,

    Does anyone know where I can buy some timing washers? All I can find at the supply houses is various sizes of timing screws, but no washers — unless I missed them, which is possible. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide!

    They turn up on eBay quite often. However they are often quite tarnished, and the ratings are somewhat suspect...

    `You should be able to get them from whatever material house you work with. I bought some from S.LaRose while they were still around, but if you talk to the operator they may have some. The material houses may not have an assortment, but will sell refills if you know size and time change desired. Otherwise check the used material sources and clean what you get to brighten them up.

    Good sets of timing washers are not easy to find even here in switzerland. as topspy said most of the time look like crap and are all mixed or the center holes are too small for pocket watches...
