    Screwdriver or key, put it in the hole and twist. Try the record again. If its still to tight do another twist with the key or diver. Repeat until record fits snug.

    Do you not have one of those drill bits you need to make holes in tiles? You should.

    just rotated gently around the centre takes off a tiny neat scraping. I might try scissors though, that's a great idea

    Usually just twist a Biro in there and it widens it out just enough.

    Also if you want to tighten the hole (giggity) then get a small strip of sellotape or similar, put it through the hole and stick it down on each side. Repeat if needed.

    Use sandpaper rolled up tight and run it through the spindle hole couple times. Job done
