I wish they still used plate screws on the modern Link ligs. Now they just flare the end of the screw to attach the place - so you can't remove the plate without destroying the attachment. Sometimes the flared end sticks out higher than the plate and your reed get's ringworm - not to mention the reed isn't being held in place properly.
Ive also been bending them, in a "U" like shape, so only the side touch the reeds--with mixed results. (I got one that became really "on-the-money", so far, but also created a few duds) Not sure if I'm on to anything or not.
Hi Ez , ii "fixed"" my link ligature by using parts of the fl ligature,,, i used the complete screw and plate of the fl ligature,,,the screw of the fll ligature is bigger so i had to drill a bigger hole in the link ligature and make a new screw ...thing (sorry my technical english is bad?!) so it fits ...works great
