    Hello, I have been working on Revere clocks here and there. I was wondering if there is a secret to the flag. When remove the movement and disassembling it, I always seem to break the flag. They are composed of very brittle metal possibly lead. Any thoughts, advice much appreciated

    The flag will seperate from the shaft - which is not really the issue, it can be affixed back to the shaft. The shaft will break at the narrow part where it sits in the plate. Once this happens they seem to be kaput. I have not found a way to fix.
