Default Servo Saver Modification (modified)

Hi colleagues,
For a long time I am using servo saver modification http://benmlee.com/Genius_Servo_Saver.htm .
And I havenít damaged any servo since then. Now I have slightly modified this Servo Saver.

Most people use O-ring, silicone tubing or heat shrink tubing to clutch the cut arm.
I think, that better solution is steel string diameter=0.3mm. Everything is clear from pictures, I believe.
Fasten the servo arm into the electric drill by some rivet or something similar and make a shallow groove by a very fine file Ė picture No. ssmm03.
It works very well and in addition you will save some weight (approx. 0.05g per 1 servo).

Did you make the wire clamp or is it off-the-shelf?

BTW, it seems like the replacement gear is available again after being unavailable for a while:

I made the clamp by myself, but it is not difficult. I used a steel string, hand drill fastened in a vice, drill bit, flat pliers and cutting pliers.
