Railroad Spade

Idiot that I am, while working on this 214 I allowed the minute hand to flip out of my tweezers and into a shag carpet.  Short story is that it is just impossible to find.  Now I need a replacement MINUTE hand and ask if anyone has a replacement MINUTE hand in this RAILROAD SPADE format?  Or has an idea, suggestion or direction where one might be found, please?

I will need a picture of the hand for reference and then I may be able to help you.

One evening, while walking to the kitchen at O-dark-thirty, the little hand will lodge in the bottom of your foot and it's where-abouts will be found.  ....or at least that's been my experience :)  Hope it's not yours.

I'm with Bobbee on this one....make sure you're using very srong mahnets and sweep across the entire area several times. Its well worth getting on your hands and knees when you finally hear that little 'click'....

Hope you find it.

Still need a picture of the type of hand you need. I have a lot of different hands and may be able to help you.

I don't know what else to do in order to attach a photo to THIS response. 

Do you not see the photo at the top of the thread?

Can you contact me directly so I can email you a photo directly?

Send it to emillerjob at gmail dot com?

Well I am sorry to report that I don't have hands to fit this watch.
