On some standard American 8-day brass clock movements, the countwheel is operated (advanced) by an extended pin in the lantern pinion of the next wheel. What is the best or accepted method of retaining the pin from coming or falling out? After years and years of repairing clocks, this is the first time I've had a missing pin. Using the same diameter of pinion wire as the rest of the wires, does not keep it from drifting out.
