Another Tannoy K3809 adventure (read – revitalization , again ) ….. Part 2.

Continuo from previous post .

 

First thing was to sand Pepperpot throats , clean them and magnets with compressed air , degrease throats with nitro-solvent and put some paper skirt , prior to spraying . I chose Graphite Black Kenda spray paint .

 

While they were drying , some work was made on basket and cones – correcting some rough edges around holes on basket and cleaning residue of old glue , positioned between basket and pole plate . Later I cleaned glue from pole plates too :

Then,adding some two component glue to cone/spider/former joint , and one layer of Dammar to paper part of VC formers :

Back of magnet work – removed peeling patches of old glue on top of screws , putting some nitro paint instead , gap cleaned with paper sticky tape .

 

 

Magnets – cleaning the gap with paper sticky tape then on to assembly . No need for shims (centering ! ) , just eyes were enough . Pictures of just one, second is looking pretty same 😉

 

To be continued …….. thorough cleaning of old surround  rubber-based goo , applying special ZM mixture instead , dammar to cones , Hf ‘fragms back in place ……..
