Default Removing magnetic shield FE127E

I want to remove the shield for clearance in an angled enclosure. How is it fixed? Is there a photo of the inside, is it safe to just start cutting through?

Pics?
I removed the casing around the double magnet assembly on a similar sized tang band with the liberal use of a hammer. I've seen others remove the magnet with heat and a large knife.

I assume it is glued on to the base of the basket. I am concerned about using heat near the magnet, or loosening the glue on the spider.

I am considering taping over the basket vents then drilling a small hole between where I think the basket and top piece is, so I can feel around, then sawing it off. I just hope the pole piece isn't vented..

Yup, the metal case was glued in.

That sounds like a decent plan AllenB. Most solutions I found online are pretty brutal.

Initial Report....


The cup is glued at the bottom to the bucking magnet. This is a ring magnet smaller than, and glued to, the bottom piece of the motor. The cup also contacts the top piece but is not glued to it.


I think I'll try quickly heating the base of the next one and twisting it off..

A little heat around the base and some leverage between the cup rim and the basket and it popped off.

It seems the bucking magnet would rather be cleaved than release at the glued joint. A clean blow with a cold chisel made a good enough single cleave.


I can now set the baffle some 1.5cm or more further back into the angle bracket.

Thanks mate. I normally hate working on drivers in the garage due to stray iron filings but this one turned out to be fairly easy.
