    Hi all :)

    I have a clock which has a Ferranti electric movement, the type which has a manual-start knob.

    I am wondering how best to secure the hands to the movement? They are push-fit and have no securing pin. The instructions for the clock suggest that the hands be 'set to the correct time' before starting the clock. However the hands just spin on the spindle when turned, there is some resistance, but not a lot. I wonder if they need to be secured with some glue or other friction enabling substance? Or do I need to tap them further onto the movement spindles?

    Photos enclosed

    Thanks :)
