I haven't personally encountered the problem. But, for certain clients
who have a tendency to change the tempo a lot, I place an appropriately
sized and tensioned coil spring fragment, approximately 1/2 to 1 inch
long, over the shaft between the tempo wheel and drive shaft socket.
Lubricate it with graphite grease and it will counter the force of the
tempo adjust screw mechanism. This is a 'minor' improvement and isn't
too far from what a factory solution might have been.
