Is there a trick to this, please? I just tried butchering a few LEDs, and I didn't find them particularly forgiving to my ministrations with a hobby knife.

The trouble with the EM34 is that it is dual sensitivity, of course. So substituting one of those russian 6E5S things is not a 'proper' replacement, even if you don't mind rotating the valve base.

Best regards
