Clock repairs
Donald Wilson Wrote:I've done a certain amount of cannibalising of defective analogue clocks, and can correct a few simple faults, but I'm definitely not a craftsman. And the most common fault I find is a broken rocker arm, which is not something that can be fixed with screwdrivers. I've thought of a way to repair rocker arms, but it would require materials and tools that I don't possess.

Me too, and it now becomes clear why arbiters spend a lot of energy stopping people playing blitz with analogue clocks!

What's your solution to fixing a rocker arm? I haven't tried removing and replacing, but a drop of well-placed glue can mend a splintered arm quite effectively.
