Iron Maiden Mummy/Orb Switch Fix
LE owner here. The Mummy switch did not work reliably out of the box. Adjusting the leaf gave me only hits from the front, not the sides, hence I had even under best adjustments only 40% trigger rate.
Looked at the switch and sure enough: the plastic rider cap was NOT center to the stem above (or underneath, depending on POV).
Fix: remove switch, "dry fit" and find correct location and alignment. Keep in mind that you want to reset your leaf gap while doing this. Once aligned drill one pilot hole.
Good idea to install a stop to your bit.
Now only install the screw closer to the stem first. You have now a few degrees "adjustment room" to center the plastic rider dead on top. The harder you drive the screw into the wood the "closer" the switch will get to the stem"
Once centered drill the second hole and install the second screw as a torsion stop (meaning, bolt down but keep in eye on your switch, you do not want it to be swiveled back out of center)
Done. I now have 100% hit rate without having to install the pointy stem.
I am not a fan of the pointy stem as it will lead to faster wear. No biggie at home, would suck on location.
