Slow and steady progress...between 3 soccer games Saturday for my kids and other "stuff".
Drill and install neo magnets, epoxy then woof filler
My paper template to visualize the grille construction and benchmarking to other grilles
Small Dayton grille used 1/4" board, maybe hardibacker board?
The beefer Atlantic Technology System 350 uses 1/2" composite board
My paper template fit with components installed, looks like it will work ok
For these small/lightweight grille I'm looking at the 1/4" hardboard, radius the corners and the slight bevel to them.
Then, router out the driver circle and two bottom port slots with router, finally install neomagnet....
heck these will be so lightweight grilles if I had some 1/8" thk metal piece could use that to save neomagmets for other projects.
I'll see if at work there are some scraps in the metal shop, or I could just use a washer.....
, yea that would work and simplest I guess.
Fabric, I might have leftover black grille cloth from Joann, and just glue it on like I saw others do, use contact cement?
Other progress - just primed the baffles, they are drying now.
Next is 2 coats of black, then 3-4 days of drying before I glue them to the box.
both primed and drying
If those neomagnets show thru after drying I'll put some spackel/sand/re-prime just that area before the black is applied.
