Used to be able to get curved dial glass. Haven't found a source and wonder if anyone knows of one.

Thanks!

Search for clock glass. There's a lot of sources.

Thank you, John. That just might be the ticket!

John Bartley's suggestion of clock suppliers paid off big time. Although his suggestion of inlineovals.com didn't work out, I found exactly what I needed, a 4 1/4" convex round dial glass at http://www.timesavers.com for the princely sum of $4.25! They have convex glass up to 15" diam. and more, and the price seems to be about $1/inch of diameter.

Thought this info might be of use to some of you.
