    I do that daily....I go through bar bushings...but the inserts have been rock solid.

    When I've done this I used a nylon washer on the top, since the Schaller arm holder has a flat bottom but the Edge has a slanted top. So the nylon washer gives a little and spreads the contact out over more surface. Ideally you'd have a mill handy and you'd counterbore a flat segment for the arm holder. But ideally I would be a billionaire and world hunger would be eradicated.

    You don't need to use the 12mm screw, if you dispense with the washer that comes with the assembly it works just fine. Of course, that's on an Edge Lo-Pro, not an original edge, so I'm not sure if you explicitly need the longer screw for the originals.
    When nothing less than second-best will do.

    Good thinking frank!

    The counterbore idea could be a total pain in the ass (may be worth doing to all of mine at once, but not anything id want to do on multiple occasions), but the nylon washer idea is great.

    This. The Gotoh mount is the best available IMHO.

    I did. Now I have to tighten the bottom screw every couple of months because the arm holder goes a little loose.
