Default Re: Metamec A909 clock- broken coil

Would the coil from a small microwave fan motor fit?

I have measured one. bobbin 34mm long. Core 12x10mm max.

They seem to be a pretty universal item, and you might salvage one from a scrap microwave for €0, but they are cheap enough to buy new,

18W is rather more than your clock consumes but I think it will be rather less without the shaded pole motor losses.
