Default B&G RD-50 dissected

Due to a technical failure one of my RD-50' s blew up.........

So why not dissect it?

Are the 2 parts with magnets repelling each other,or did you use force to part them.

Reppeling, that is why I used the rig with the beam on top. Very dangerous to drill out the rivets with such thing!

Nice of you to share this, even though it's sad that you killed it. By the way - what happened with it?

A hardware failure in my dsp killed it............

Maybe this is a nice exercise to make a new foil, it isn't rocket science!

no it might be really easy only getting the exact same as the other one would be tricky. or are they both fried ?

Ordered a new one. But it will be a nice project to see if I can make a new foil and compare it it with a original one. It is just a mylar foil with 4 conductors and two stripes cellotape.... Step one: the thickness of the mylar.

Any ideas?

Mylar is the same as PET, polyester.
