Hi All

I have a 6119-6023 I'm working on and the minute hand is a fraction too loose on the canon pinion. Does anyone have a technique to resize the hand hole for a tighter fit? Sadly I do not have a stake set. I guess I'm looking for a 'creative' solution ;)

Cheers

You can also "score" the inside of the hole on the minute hand with a hobby knife...usually three little ridges will do the trick. Regards, BG

So I tried a pin vice but there was not enough lip on the hand hole to get a grip. In the end I pinched the lip on 4 sides with tweezers while holding the hand with a tooth pick through the hole. This seems to have done the trick.
