    Clockkit clocks.

    I ordered some of the small clocks that go into a 2 3/4" hole. I didn't think to ask what the overall diameter of the clock is and now I find they are close back east. Does anybody have one to measure? I can't imagine them being more that 3"-3 1/4" but just want to be sure.... The part # is E-72-MM-R I did look on the website but just not finding the information.

    Thanks
    Aloha,

    Just grasping at straws here Royall, but is there a chance you've confused the over-all size with the mounting diameter? The reason I ask is because searching your part# came up with this though there is a *C after the 'E-72-MM-R' {*C} which I'm sure refers to the 'C'hrome bezel...anyways that would be a 2 3/4" overall with a 2 3/8ths mounting hole... just a thought, hopefully someone has one as you mentioned...

    Hmmmmmmm.... I hope you're wrong!! I've already drilled the hole!! This is what I read: "2 ” Insert Clock Ivory Roman Minimum Depth 11/16” Hole Size 2 3/4” Use: Forstner Bit"

    Worse comes to worst, plug the hole with a complimenting wood and re-drill...then wash it down with something strong

    It will be hard to re-drill. The clock body is made up of 3 layers of wood. I cut the 2 3/4" hole on the drill press with a fly cutter as I don't have a forstner bit that size. then I glued the 3 pieces (for all 7 clocks) together in a big stack. Plugging and re-drilling is not too good of and option.... Just have to call the company on Monday. Hope I don't have to scrap 75 buck worth of wood.......

    Rotall, it says on the description to use bit #PRO-2375, when I looked that up it was a 2 3/8" bit. Like Ken I hope I'm incorrect about this.

    I use Klockit to order all my small clocks, pretty sure it is an industry standard to list the overall diameter of the clock, the mounting hole will be smaller usually by 1/8 inch. This is why I like Klockit, they list both the clock dia. and the hole dia needed, they will also list the forstner bit needed. Usually 2 3/4 require a 2/3/8 hole. You might be able to use a rubber insert to fill the gap, but it might be visible don't know for sure, never used an insert ring like that...these clocks are really inexpensive, you might find a new clock inserts that will match you drilled holes cheaper and faster then redoing the wood.

    If it comes down to a loss and your forced to spend again, you might want to think about using Lee Valleys inserts, these are made for a 2 3/4" mounting hole...it would at least save the labor aspect.

    Edit: I see Mark beat me to it
