glad to see I'm not alone with the burn marks on the scalloped chamfers on plywood - even with an almost brand new bit

Mark, looks like a roundover on your sketch. Which is better for the back of the baffle in this application, a champher or a roundover?

Hi Gary,
Apologies for any confusion. Where I come from, "chamfer" is often used to describe a smoothed off edge (rounded). For surface mounting (front of baffle) with all the baffle thickness to hand, the angled method might be better. For recessing the driver into the baffle, possibly the rounded might be easiest where remaining baffle thickness is reduced.

Go for the method that best suites your level of woodworking skill. The main thing is to try to have the minimum of side wall facing the back of the cone.

Cheers
Mark.

Mark, is speaker gasket recommended for the A10.2 if surface mounting or does the rubber seal serve the same function?

In most circumstances the superGasket should be very sufficient.

I just found a two-component glue from the Dutch brand Bison, which is specially formulated for gluing plastics. It is called Kombi Plastic, and according to the manufacturer one component is an acrylate resin, and the other component is a modified amide. It is claimed to be suitable for many kinds of plastics (ABS, PMMA, polycarbonate and hard PVC are mentioned as examples of suitable plastics), but the following polymers are on the no-no list:
- Polyethylene
- Polypropylene
- PTFE
- Polystyrene foam
I think it will just not stick to the first three, but it might attack polystyrene. And so my question: is there any chance of the basket not being compatible with this glue, or can I use it safely?
