The attachment to on my gimbal motor has become looser over the years - see image below. It is now very (too) easy to pop the camera off the shaft and it often drops off. This also means that it can get out of alignment.

Does anyone know a quick fix for this issue? Is there a way to increase friction on the spindle, or can you clean the magnets on the motor to increase the grip?

Or is it just that it is worn out and needs replacing.

Thank you.

I may have answered my own question after a few threads popped up. This video suggests a small amount of model epoxy, applied in the little well where the shaft sits. Slightly worrying - as I guess you get one chance to get it straight!

Has anyone tried this - and would I be OK to use araldite or similar?
