in that case - be sure that either screw is electrically isolated on one ( even better - both ) ends ..... or that your screen-bell is electrically isolated from bottom of case , so you are not having shorting turn through donut itself

wire in windings is also isolated from core , electrically ..... but not magnetically

heres another option for high VA transformers, a cup under the can. Papa also said... somewhere, that he rotates the can for minimal elecrtromagnetic interference.

Hmm... I didn't know that there still are possibilities for the electrical loop when trafo center is "metal free", but now that you say it makes sense with the magnetism and all. Well I have to make myself a nylon bolt then.

i think i rather would use a metal bolt and nylon washers on the bottom and on the cover(like the ones you find on speaker binding posts)
it can be hard for the nylon bolt treads to hold down the transformer.

Great work on the cover! Would the value of such a cover be to reduce stray fields or the transformer's mechanical noise?

Another option, to preserve the clean looks of the shield. Use a good silicone to bond the shield over/around the transformer. Silver solder a piece of wire or braid to the bottom edge of the shield, and run it to a good chassis ground (or just let the shield "float", ungrounded, if hum is not a problem). Result is a grounded shield, with no bolts/nuts showing in the top, and with no dreaded "magnetic loop" around the toroid core. Voila.

(Now, back to the "photos" in this Pass amp photo thread!.....)
