I still am looking for the clock time set knob on the back of the radio, had tried another knob but was too big..I did get the front 2 clock knobs replaced.

The threaded shaft on the clock stem is really tiny !

Thanks Dennis.

Radio model C-431-A

I have an aluminum time setting knob from a Telechron clock radio movement. It is right-hand threaded and 1/2" in diameter. It screws onto a 1/8" diameter shaft. Contact me if you are interested.

Hi did you ever get the 2 front and rear knobs?
I recently sold an entire knob kit for clock radios to a guy near me. I can contact him for those knobs if you send me all 3 knob diagrams or dimensions.
Jim

PS A photo of them will help.

well I did get one metal knob for the clock set shaft in the rear but it was too big of a thread so I still need that also.

I could get buy with just one pointer knob for the front, here are close up of the knobs.

What size is the screw? 6/32? Is it a knob or the flat round piece that threads on?

Until I can find one of those for mine, I just put on a small nut from my junk box, works fine.

It's pretty darn small threads, it is supposed to be a flat round threaded knob.

I might have to see if our local hardware store has any miniature nuts on hand, I have not found anything in all my junk boxes lol

You may be able to find a knurled nut the right size at a hardware store. The earlier Telechrons tended to have reverse-threaded time setting stems making finding replacement knobs a challenge.

I think it's time to get out the magnifying glass and inspect those tiny threads :wink:
