Thanks JerryVan,

I think your observations about glue and the needlebar are spot on. I felt it was likely a very poor idea. ... so solder it is.

"Just be sure that the new back plate allows enough room for the phase plug to be there without hitting the diaphragm. Chances are, it wont make a terribly noticeable difference either way."

It actually is a tad further away from the diaphragm than the original. I think you are correct about the lack of noticeable difference and I will just build it without the phase plug. Maybe later I will add it with a temporary adhesive just to see if I can hear anything worth going further with. That is nice thing about a new case, ring and back ... I know opening it up will not be difficult.

Cheers

If you do that, let us know what you find.

I will certainly do so.

I will also continue to post pictures and notes about how I'm doing. I know this is old hat for many, but it may come in handy for someone else down the road. There are great resources here and one the web [like Wyatt Markus's instructions], but I finding lots of finicky little details [like removing the pivot bar] and puzzles that pop up.

Cheers
