|This wooden piece had a lot of play because it had|
loosened from the bushing it was glued to.
I was able to carefully remove the bushing, and re-apply some glue. I wasn't convinced it would hold, so I secured the set pin of the bushing in place with respect to the wood with some Shapelock.

Well see if this works. I do worry slightly about the stress on that curved piece of wood, it seams feasible that it could be a weak point in the transfer of torque. Luckily in normal operation, the torque is probably minimal. It is only when I inadvertently try to turn the arm past its limits there could be a problem.
Time will tell. For the time being, it works great.
