    Default cuckoo clock hand replacement

    In replacing cuckoo clock hands, the minute hand has a brass insert with square key. Should this be press fit only or should the brass insert be glued in?
    It does not fit tightly by itself but when the post nut is screwed on then it seems tight.

    That's how it's supposed to fit. That way, if your minute hand doesn't match the strike time, you can turn it a little on that shoulder and tighten it again with the nut.

    There should be a flat brass flat washer between the hand and the nut. This is often lost. It is just slightly larger than the nut.
