Thread Name: Me flute's gone wobbly...
Subject: RE: Me flute's gone wobbly...
Years ago when my old Boosey & Hawkes Regent flute suffered a similar problem, and repair shops weren't as technically tooled up as they are now, I wrapped kitchen foil and epoxy resin around the 'male' part of the foot joint.

The following day, when it was thoroughly set, I slowly sanded it with wet & dry, and soapy water, unitl I got a good fit. That was 20 years ago, and it's still a good fit...

Good luck with it!
