    You are correct about the “pin pricks”. It was, many years ago an acceptable method of making the pivot hole smaller or even if a new bush was fitted but the fit was a bit sloppy. It is very much frowned upon these days even though you can still buy special punch sets to do it. One of the biggest rules in horology is “Do no harm” but, if its your own clock and not rare or worth a fortune then the choice is up to you.
