I received a Lufkin # 771 that I won off Ebay and it’s in really good shape but I’m not sure how old it is either but at 8 bucks I could’nt pass it up.
One of the hinges is a little loose and I was sondering if I could tighten it up by tapping it with a nail set on the brad end?

Try a tight fitting pin punch first. This would not make an indention.
