Hey guys, I just recently picked up a flip clock but the original motor has died, is there any chance of what I can do to repair it? Or source a replacement

When renovating my grandfather's house, I kept trying to repair the original 1960's wall oven. That thing fought me tooth and nail. One of the problems it had was that the mechanical digital clock barely moved. I tried several times to get the clock motor running, and had some success, but never lasting. My advice is get another clock motor, and modify it to work in this clock.

Yeah, I re-read the first post you put out

So you left it nonworking or did you put a different motor onto it

I left it not working. I ended up hating that oven. It wasn't just the clock, the entire thing was cursed. Nothing on it wanted to work.
