The string broke that controls the frequency of the radio

So I am restoring a flip clock and was doing some soldering when I accidentally melted the string that controls the radio station. It is a very thin string. Could I replace it with thicker string? The radio still works, I just can't change the station.

Is this a good question?

Gigabit878 , Look at different types of fishing line, I believe I saw a person replace theirs with fishing line(can not remember if it was fly line or just normal mono filament). Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

How would I connect the ends to it after?


@gigabit87898 , I am pretty sure he just knotted and trimmed it, if worried about the knot maybe over lap ends a little and just a touch of glue/epoxy. Good luck.
