I put wt. 4 in my clock main, a magnetic Lingao, and broke it in. The next day, I went to practice clock, and it had a big stain on the cutout. Do any of you know what I can do about this? Thank you for your help.

Where did you put the wt 4? If you just put it inside the cover, you didn’t lube it correctly. You have to open up the plastic shell cover, then take out the black inner part, unscrew the two halves of that, and then lube it and put it back together. There are tutorials on yt if you are confused.

I don’t really know what to do about the stained insert... I know it’s comp legal, but short of getting another clock and putting its cutout in I’m not sure what to do.

I wasn’t able to take off the ducktape:(, so I put it on the clock wheel, and did a bunch of solves.
Unfortunately, that really won’t do anything beneficial. If it helped at all, it would help much less than actually taking it apart. In the future, if you magnetized this clock, use electrical tape instead. And if you can’t take apart the clock, then I don’t think you can modify how the insert looks at all. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

But it’s still comp legal, so as long as you don’t mind it looking funny, you shouldn’t have too much of a problem.

I replaced my clock inserts with custom ones, and now there is no stain. Unfortunately, in my custom insert the top left corner 12:00 is off to the right between 12:00 and 1:00 on one side. Is it competition legal? I tried to upload an image, but the file was too large.

For the image, use an image hosting site and post the link. i.e., imgbb.com
