Been playing with this for about a week and haven't been able to figure out why it runs fine for awhile and then the string starts skipping the post. The video will explain better. The only part I replaced is the ball. I picked one up at a local hobby store. It's 1/2 in and weighs less than a gram..

I think Your ball is too light , try a heavier one . E.g. I have "borowed" a rose quarz pearl about the same size as Yours from a busted necklace of my better half , that works fine!

Burkhard, I was thinking that also. I'll give a go and let you know.

That was it. Been running now for twelve hours. I drilled out the ball a bit and inserted a quarter inch of roofing nail. Problem solved.
Thanks again
