    I have two Standard Electric Time clocks that need to be operated by some sort of a master clock. I hope I have used the right terminology. I do not need a master clock if i could obtain some kind of pulsing machine that could give a low voltage current surge every minute. Do they make something kinda simple that does such a thing as I am not that electronics savvy. Thank you for your responses! Dave

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I have no idea what you're talking about. :p

    Are these from a school surplus or similar? So all of the clocks in a building show the same time, or are they time reference circuits that provide 1 second pulses?

    Used in ships.

    Able to set the time back or advance it while crossing the time zones while underway.

    They are commanded by the master clock which is in the bridge.

    So the OP - if he's still around - needs a clock pulse to act as the master, to synchronize these two slave clocks? I'm assuming these would need to be accurately timed (ie. not a 555 timer solution) and therefore he probably needs a quartz crystal oscillator and digital circuit to deliver a synch signal.

    There's a clock guy on the electrotech-online (ETO) forum that has a lot of standard electric clocks and specialist clock circuits.

    I know it's rude to advise someone to go to another forum but that might be a better place to ask. :)
