 HI Barry,

Thanks to you helping me find the frequency of the crystal, I just ordered 50 of them for $7.03 including shipping.
I only needed one for the repair and a few for spares but there was a $5.00 minimum.. 
I ordered them from Tyda Electronics. I am giving half of them to Paul at Ten Tec since he is out  but if anyone else needs one let me know.
I plan to keep 10 to 15 for repairs but for an SASE, I can give away the rest.

Of course, I will need to verify they will work and not run into any snags first...

Just guessing but DS1285 data sheets says it's a 32.768Khz clock

crystal.  You might be able to steal one from an old AT computer
