Welcome to Woodnet.

This seems as good a place as any for your question.

I will be interested in hearing the answers myself.

You could try Merritt’s, I purchased the movement etc for Grandfather clock from them 15 years ago. Good selection, reliable people. If your near enough interesting place to visit.

I've had good luck in the past with

"73 is the best number because it's the 21st prime number, and it's mirror 37 is the 12th prime number, whose mirror 21 is the product of 7 times 3. Also in binary 73 is 1001001, which is a palindrome." - Dr. Sheldon Cooper

I've not used them, but there is a big company here in town that might have what you need.  https://www.klockit.com/

Thanks to all. I bought a WMKit-01 from Clockworks.
Unfortunately the face/dial is 6 in. and should be about 7-3/4.
Probably never find one that matches holes for key entries.
Plans do not specify dial nor movement. Discovered original came from Rockwell but they don't recognize cat. number.
Read that there are errors in the plans. Have not spotted them but would like to hear from someone who has built this clock.
Appreciate the help. I'm 86 and want to complete this soon! Smile.

Just finished a Shaker wall clock. I had the bim bam pendulum movement and hands but could not find the right style and size face anywhere. So I made my own. I used a demo version of CorelDraw and with the help of Google it took all of an hour to figure out. The Corel file is scalable to any size, there are tons of fonts and the “array” drawing tools were very easy to use. I printed the face at home with some “100 year” inks and used spray adhesive to mount to 1/4” ply. I was able to print a few and really tweak the size until I got just what I wanted. Turned out great and really capped the project for me. I made the clock in the shop and the face at the computer.
