Got laser-cut plate and couple of letters engraved on it. Perhaps I polished it too much so letters are not so visible anymore.

Alex! Yes, the new holder goes directly to the original CM feedarms. After installed, it gives possibility to position LNB exactly how the original (plastic) holder does. But, in addition, it is possible to change the position of the LNB up/down, change the aiming point, and, of course, change the skew.

@RimaNTSS - nice work - question: i seem to remember you saying that the arms are not the correct length for optimal setting.

so do they need altering too in addition to this new whizzy LNB holder>

No, the original CM feedarms are at the correct length. But, in fact they should be at different length if you wish to switch from universal LNB to original CM feedhorn. It is still much better to have original feedarms replaced by length-adjustable ones. It is always better to have more flexibility.

Rima,
thank you for reply
Am I right to say that location of lnb for original arms and plastic holder for ChM 1.0, 1.2, 1.8 Is correct, but there Is only Issue with lnb pointing to center of dish Instead of slightly down to get better signal level

More or less yes, correct.
