It was always a thought on my mind since I've heard about the bump
issue on the list before.

It is my opinion (of course I defer to the designer of the board if my
thougthts are a bit out in left or right field) that the securing
point on the corner of the stylus silo on the SER-001 might have been
better (if possibl) to have that corner cut out and a thin metal
material with a cut out hole soldered thru the board (3 pin thru board
soldered) provide enough support and mounted as not to cause any bump
or need to be adjusted...

However I'm not sure if this would cause price increases or another
failure point...

Thank you greaciously for listening to these ramblings...

God bless,
