I have a cuckoo with a pendulum bob that has tiny staples holding the metal clasp that slides on the pendulum rod to the actual bob. I would say at some point there were little screws holding this on. Where can one get these tiny screws. It works as is but there is a little play in the clasp/bob Interface because the staples dont fill the entire hole in the metal clasp.

Power, I think those are usually attached with tiny nails. You should be able to find those at hardware stores. Or, you may find small enough screws there also.

Some are stapeled from the factory. A drop of super glue in the gap and a good push on staple/s for a few seconds and youre done. Screws are not normally used here, tiny nails are the rule. Willie X
