Lensbaby mount swap?

I've had a Lensbaby Muse for many years originally brought for my Pentax DSLRs. Last night I finally manged to pick up a Composer (much more controllable/repeatable) which is in EF mount.

I can readily use either on my mirrorless cameras via adapters but I'd like to swap the lens mounts on the two units so I can use the composer on my DSLRs & sell off the Muse.

Has anyone else done this?

It looks as if the mounts are simply attached by 3 small screws which seem to be in the same positions on each unit. The mounting plate of the EF version also looks to be thicker by just the right amount for the difference in registration. Making for a very easy swap as long as I can undo the screws. (A quick try last night suggests they are held in place with Loctite - so a little heat will be needed)
