    OK, the consensus seems to be that the stiffness is standard for this timer. I've used earlier models and the selector was always very easy to move. If this is the way the P-72 is, it's kind of a relief that I don't need to bother buying tools and tinkering with it. Thanks to everyone!

    Don't forget that the set pointer needs to hold back the time pointer. It necessarily must be difficult to move or it wouldn't work.

    Yes, it needs to be stiff to move but you should still be able to move it with two fingers worth of pressure.

    I realize this is an old thread but for future reference i had the same issue with my P72 and have fixed it. I applied penetrating oil and lithium grease in the two areas in the photo and it freed up the dial a lot. Its still a bit tough but a lot better.
