There just isn't enough bolt to work ...

Thanks for all the advice, but I re-measured the exposed bolt and it is only 1/4" in length. When you add the shoulder washer and the lock washer, there is absolutely no room for a nut - trust me on this. Even when I follow everyone's input, I wouldn't be able to turn the nut even one revolution. I'm doing all this when the transformer isn't even on the plate ... the plate adds a little bit of additional thickness (even when the shoulder washers are properly seated) so installing the washers or the solder lug is out of the question. In theory, I could sand each of the shoulder washers to make them thinner, but that seems to counter intuitive.

I'll call Bottlehead today and see what they can tell me ....
