So, the knex center rod on the string twister got a bit twisted.  I decided to go with a bolt for the replacement.  The clip that drives the center gear needs something square to clip to, so I ground down only two sides of the bolt where the clip needed to attach.  It seemed to work pretty well.  Unfortunately, we had some nice weather and I decided to twist some string outside.  I was working on a twelve strand string, which of course adds a little more torque, and the clip flew off... into the grass... somewhere.

Guess I should have squared up the bolt, and probably glued the clip on. 

Anyway, does anyone have a spare clip with the little peg that drives the gears?  And, any suggestions on whether it should be glued, or not?
