    Does anybody know how to make a home-made digital chess clock?

    All you need are two digital clocks and a switch that lets only one run at a time.

    You might be able to use a certain type of stopwatch that keeps multiple times on it. That way, with a click of a button, you can cycle through "time 1" and "time 2"

    I doubt it would be very difficult, but my latest clock was only $30. At that price, there is little reason to build your own, especially since you get delay, movecounts etc. with the purchased version.

    He's right; you can get a good clock fairly cheap. In fact, I'll sell you one, but you'd have to have it fixed.

    Well...It´ll be cheap if you live at the States and your earnings are in dollars,,,,,
    I live in Argentina and earn in pesos....(about 1 U$S= $3,1)
    And there is a lot of shipping cost too!!!!!!
    So a U$S 22 Saitek will rise up to U$S 100....

    http://www.chesshouse.com/help_answer.asp?ID=26 has good prices, and does ship to Argentina. The price may still be prohibitive, as you mentioned.

    There isn't one chess store in Argentina? Try these clubs, someone should be able to point you in the right direction:

    Thanks Wuleburg.
    Personally I can afford a 30 U$S Chess Clock. But It would have been grat to know how to make them and have 15 done for a chess club.

    Argentine chess sucks...There are few clubs and few tournaments.
    I live in Neuquen city and there is no club or federation.

    So I wanted to start one.

    Thanks for helping me

    Regards
