Default Re: shavings found in light switch body

I got a new light switch body from Snyders. If I recall it was labeled as 28-29 but appears to be for a twolight not an H config.
There is also a caveat note saying you have to do about ten thousand things to make it work!!!

I noticed a VERY VERY faint crack in the "circuit board?" of the H terminals and it catches easily. I supposed some heavy grease will allow it to move freely.
I do not think the crack is an issue.

One thing I noticed on the outside of the body are grooves cut radially out from the center opening. see attach. if I can load it.

I fail to see the argument to use the old contact plate in place if the new one.
UNless there is a wish to keep the original part intact?
I want the new wiring. The old wiring had been end spliced, T-spliced and burgered up so much it not only looks bad, it looks unsafe. I would hate to have to cut the new wires off and connect them to the old plate.

Thanks to all who have provided their insights!!
