Broken gauge needle!

Does anyone know if it possible to fix a broken needle on my tachometer?

Like a complete idiot I managed to drop it It still works but the needle has snapped. Not sure if it is even possible let alone economically viable but I like it and wouldn't mind getting it repaired. A quick google search hasn't turned up anything so was wondering whether anyone else has tried or know of companies that fix gauges?

Thanks, Simon

Cant you open it up and then make something up using an old clock hand or something?

I managed to open up a load of my old gauges to try them out and re seal them, but it was a long careful process.

Replace the needle. Problem is finding a replacement, but contact the manufacturer as you never know...
