Larry, you may be right.  In this case it was an Ome XXX with a sheet brass (?) stamped flange, brackets and a hoop/spun metal tonering.  10 years of use, zero flange distortion, no damage to the flange plating.  The Ome is lighter than a Mastertone by a couple pounds; I can't comment on the relative strength of a sheet metal flange vs a cast zinc flange.  YMMV as always.

Very cool, Dave, we all want what works, I see a decade of use should have been enough, but you've got a great solution. Thank you for sharing with everybody. I loved ODE, I love OME. i USE 1/8" SHEET BRASS flatbar for my tone rings.

So I no longer feel it's adventurous.

It is now NOGGIN, way to go.
