    I'm preparing to retweet Monitor 10's with RDO-194's. Vintage 1988 speakers. Would it be wise to JB Weld the drivers magnet for preventive maintenance while I have them out of service? I've searched for this info but yet to find. Thank You!

    Yes, a great idea.

    Hey I have 2 MW6500's from my 7B's with shifted magnates that I would trade for 1 MW6500 that works. I attempted to do the whole jig thing but its been 3 days on and off and I haven't been able to get it lined up. If your interested in a swap like that, Im game!

    How is it working for you ?
    i have i think 4-6 frozen SD 6600x from sda1 signature series.
    wondering if you still do this, as i am going crazy trying to find replacements, because i dont feel confident to do this myself.
    is it difficult?

    No, it's not really. Just have to get past the fear of separating the pole plate and magnet from the basket. Then find an appropriate sized PVC adapter and tap it for screws. I did a write up here somewhere....

    Very easy once you make the tool. Use a PVC pipe, cut an inch out of it all the way down to make it a collar, then use a hose clamp to clamp it onto the magnet. Use screws spaced evenly around the circumference to center the frame once it's in place.
    A few more tricks but happy to explain in detail. Check out @FestYboy if he made a write-up. Good luck!
