Julio, This looks very similar to Alton's timer--and it's on sale!
cutleryandmore.com then search for "dual timer."

Timer

Odd that the site didn't have the timer. I ordered one the day I posted. It works great.

I prefer to use my PC for timing projects. The format of the input to the timer program is 999.99 (minutes) E.G. 3 hours 45 seconds is entered as 180.75.

dBASE5 Program code looks like this:

* 01/12/2011
* Written as a backup to Lux mechanical timer
Input 'Enter NUMBER OF MINUTES ' To NrMinutes
TimeStart=Time()
Do While (Elapsed(Time(),TimeStart) / 60) < NrMinutes
MinDone= (Elapsed(Time(),TimeStart) / 60)
@ 09, 6 Say 'Minutes Requested = '
@ 09, 25 Say NrMinutes Picture "999.99"
@ 11, 8 Say 'ELAPSED MINUTES = '
@ 11, 25 Say MinDone Picture "999.99"
@ 13, 6 Say 'REMAINING MINUTES = '
@ 13, 25 Say (NrMinutes - MinDone) Picture "999.9"
Enddo
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* I=0
* Do While I < 10
* DO BUZZER
* I =I + 1
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* Enddo
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* I=0
* Do While I < 10
* I =I + 1
* DO BUZZER
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* Enddo
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* I=0
* Do While I < 10
* I =I + 1
* DO BUZZER
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
* Enddo
DO BUZZER
DO BUZZER
DO BUZZER
SET TALK OFF
J = 0
DO WHILE J < 500
J = J + 1
I= 0
DO WHILE I < 20000
I=I+ 1
MinDone= (Elapsed(Time(),TimeStart) / 60)
@ 11, 8 Say 'ELAPSED MINUTES = '
@ 11, 25 Say MinDone Picture "999.99"
ENDDO
DO BUZZER
ENDDO
SET TALK ON
* PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
PROCEDURE BUZZER
PLAY SOUND FILENAME C:\Windows\Media\Ringout.wav
RETURN
