Buy a new one They are cheap and you can be more comfortable that it is accurate.

I agree, I think they are only about 10 bucks, its not worth the time to mess around with it. And like kevin said, you will have no idea how accurate it will be.

i'll third that opinion. that swing arm needs to swing absolutly freely, any resistance will skew your results. They're not even $10 around here, I've seen the SeaChem swing arms for <$5 here. The DeepSix ones are probably closer to $10

Yours is 2 points lower, each hydrometer is an individual, some (of the same brand) will be right on the money, some will be low and some will be high...to varying degrees.
