Here Rabbi Clapman says teffilin should not be checked with lights and with magnifying glass. Only what you can see with your naked eye. Most of the “pesulim” (touching letters, or cracked letters) are very difficult to see with the naked eye. So that means most are actually kosher. If Rabbi Clapman checked them (without magnifying etc) we would probably have a very different outcome.

So what does that say about this whole episode of claiming all the sofrim are fruads?

Some of rabbi clapmans views are rather radical. Lechatchillah and bedieved are practical halachic terms. Why does he not acknowledge this. Everyone else does. The comparison to the esrog is confusing. If its kosher you can give it for mivtzoyim, he says only things which make it unkosher would make it unfit for mivtzoyim. A mezuzah is still definitely kosher if its missing some crowns. Yet he says you cant use it for mivtzoyim as such. Seems like a contradiction.

4# they are selling posul mezuzas according to all standards.

They are selling posul mezuzas. He’s machshil the rabim and couldn’t care less!! He’s making money don’t bother him.
Everyone knows the truth and he’s trying to cover for himself to his customers. The truth eventually comes out. Him and the others are done
