I am looking for a good supplier of clock parts and need to find a supplier that has numbers that actually stick to wood or has spigots that can be glued into holes to stop them falling of

In the past the supplier I used in Bunbury may have had old stock and I had great difficulty in sticking them down

I have been thinking that instead of numbers I may be able to use brass or stainless rivets of different sizes (larger for the quarter hour and smaller for the five minute indicators) glued into the wood - comments please and where could these be sourced from. They could be sprayed over to keep their shine.

Regards
Mike

I originally placed this in the woodturning section as I hoped there would be a greater audience than just clock makers re the use of rivets instead of numbers - was a good idea while it lasted
