Our quartz clock inserts offer another extremely simple method of clockmaking. Simply mount one of the completely self-contained clock inserts in a hole that has been drilled, cut or molded. You can do this with any material: wood, fabric, ceramic or crystal to name a few. Like the quartz inserts, you need only install a battery and set the time. You'll then be ready to pop the insert into the hole.

My Brother made me a clock mounting that looks like the one on this page. The back part that goes in the hole is 2 inches across. The clock has quit running and I would like to find a new insert for the nice base he made.

Asked by: Garyelvis
Hi Gary, we don't currently offer a clock insert that fits into a 2" hole. Our closest, and best recommendation would be this clock insert: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-15286.html. It fits into a 1 7/8" hole; to make it fit into a 2" hole, you can add a rubber band or two to increase the mounting diameter. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com.

What size forstner bit is used for a 2" clock ?

Asked by: Grunt65
Hi Jim, the mounting diameter of the clock insert will determine the size forstner bit needed. Please refer to the product page of the clock insert you have or wish to purchase for the mounting diameter size. If we have a forstner bit that goes with that specific clock insert, it will also be listed with that information. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548.

If my old clock insert is 2" and the face plate is 2 1/2 " (the hole cutout is 2" ) do I order a 2" insert or 2 1/2 " insert

Asked by: Maryl
Based on the info you provided, you would need a a clock insert that has a 2 1/2" overall diameter with a mounting diameter of 2". We don't have an exact match, but would recommend these options: #15286: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-15286.html (smaller overall dia, but closer alternative to your mounting diameter at 1 7/8") #15686: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-15686.html (same overall dia, but larger mounting dia; select this option if you have the means to enlarge the hole) Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-556-2548 with any questions on this information. We're happy to help!

I need a clock insert size 2 & 3/8, it only shows other sizes

Asked by: Clare
If you are looking for a clock insert that will fit into a 2 3/8" hole, we have many choices! Look for a mounting diameter of 2 3/8". Here are a few of our favorites: (1) http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-15707.html (2) http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-15005.html (3) http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-kkkkk.html If the 2 3/8" refers to the front (overall) diameter, we'll need to know what size hole you are looking to mount the insert into. If that's the case, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548.
