Repairing A Music Box?I've taken it apart and put it back together to find out what the issue was and it seems like it's missing something? When I first got it, the thing was wobbly. It's supposed to play music when I spin the lid but the horses and top just comes off. I believe there's a piece missing and that's why it's wobbly. I found a video on YouTube and it's supposed to be a wind up. The top is supposed to allow it to be winded up.
