Personally I hate tapping with screws. Did it once and I would never do it again. Even though it seems to work ok the metal around the hole will distort leaving the surface uneven. I have a hand tapping jig that I use to keep everything straight. I can tap those for you at no charge if you want to pay shipping. Let me know.

Although I have disassembled and reassembled reedplates countless times this is my first time installing new plates. Are there any pitfalls to tap the holes with the screws on the first install?
