Thank you for the scoop!
I associated the term labodomy with my SB 220 transfomer which which had its
back end sliced off.
Somehow seeing that slice for the first time ( I had never removed the back
of the SB 220) reminded me of the Frankenstein movies where he had a sewn
seam around his forhead line. I erroneously asociated that with a labaodomy.

We are both learning from this excellent reflector.

Best regards,
