[Harp-L] Do it yourself customizing questions

I'm going to convert some Marine Bands to screws. Some questions...

1. Is 1-72 x 3/8" an appropriate size screw (reed plates & covers w nuts)?

2. Looking at bee's wax. Not sure how much (volume) a pound is. How much is needed (dunking)?

3. Opening covers by bending the apron under. Does that weaken the cover (might want to play in rack)?

Thanks in advance.

Peace and music,
