The whole point of a forum is to stir things up - keep the posts coming. :lol:

Your best bet with the back of your machine might be to plane or saw (or god forbid) sand out a ridge all round the inside of the new back so it recesses into the case flush on the outside. The not so good option would be to cut the new back larger to fit flush with the sides rather than inset. If the back had worm, check and treat the case edges if affected.

I must be used to living in a poop storm, I didn't spot anything.

Your imperial ply is waiting for you at your nearest house clearance auction house.
Old brown furniture is pennies at the moment, nobody wants it. Most cupboards/drawers/wardrobes etc. from that era used it on the back panel.
If you don't fancy paying for it, go around the back where they dump the stuff that doesn't sell.

If you don't have an auction near you try Charity Shops.

B&Q sell 5.5 mm plywood which is 0.217 inches. That's what I used on my penguin allwin - it's perfect.

Poop storm! Love it !!HYSTERIA!! What do you expect from a bunch of anally retentive collectors?

No serious collector would dream of using modern when there's so much period ply available. !PEEP! :lol:

Thanks B.P. great idea. No auction houses near here but loads and loads of Charity shops.

Thank you Highfield, I have seen that but on this machine that is a little too narrow and leaves a gap of a couple of mm

It starts with retention but there's only one possible outcome. !!SHIT!!
