Anyone have a spare one, working or not? Happy to pay for it and postage.

John

Those things were rare to begin with. I suspect they are made of unobtainium.

What's wrong with the old one? Is repair out of the question?

Mostly just as a spare. I replaced one gear in the one I have from another Smiths Sectric electric desk clock with the same movement. However, the large gear that actually turns the TV on is cracked. Am going to try and have one made, but not sure how successful that will be.

There is a company in the UK on the net that makes spare parts for clocks. I once ordered a mainspring from them. Being a Smiths there'd be a pretty good chance they'd be able to help you.
