There is alu solder, and I can share a few cm's, but comeon this question is ages old . . .

I just bought Lowthers but one needs a new surround. I try to find out how to do that as I do not want the cash layout for factory repair).
Suggestions?

yes Atelier Rullit would like to service them too and this looks like a good value/price compared to factory rejobbing.

tnx for reply

that issue somehow isn't an issue anymore

for Lowther refoam - just search on ebay.de for Lowther and you'll find myriad of recone kits

I believe with little patience you can do it by your self

A yes, the extension .DE is de secret
I forget that the ebay sites are not linked together. Yes patience and some experience (e.g. I made Fostex 103 spider with wires ... )

whenever I'm searchin' something on bay , I'm using extended search , with Europe as search area

in that case , you can use your local bay , but hits are from all over
