Message: Can I use a mechanical (wind up) alarm clock on shabbos.

Reply: yes
rabbi , can you clarify his question . does he mean to ask if one is permitted to wind it up , set it and turn off the ringer when it wakes him, on shabbos?
Reply:  He means all of the above, which would all be muttar. No, plugging it in, would be assur.
