    Well, I don’t consider it a boutique item, but I do prefer a Solder that I get from parts express with a small silver content, which melts very easily and presents a very clean configuration.

    And would this solder you speak of be Cardas Quad Eutectic?

    And while I'm at it, what is the best applicator. Obviously this is smaller detail than a soldering GUN approach. A soldering pen perhaps? 

    I did see a nice "Hakko FX888D-23BY Digital Soldering Station FX-888D FX-888 (blue & yellow)" on Amazon for 106 bucks. Would this be a wise choice? Or do I just head over to Harbor Freight?

     

     

  2. As an accomplished wood worker I want to add one more important tid bit. After removing strip of veneer (as per babadono's directive) remember to clean all adhesive residue off of surface before adding new piece of edge banding. Unless the surface is perfectly clean edge banding will not adhere properly no matter how much you try. Many people give up frustrated for not knowing this.

     

    I would also suggest taking your replacement edge banding to your local paint/stain store and have them help you dial in the correct color. They will begin with a quart  of custom stain for you. Take the old banding to the paint store along with your new banding you so they have an accurate way of formulating the proper color. With a bit of extra time and a little leg work, your Belle's will love you lots more!

  3. As I mentioned early on, the Khorns nor the K-402's aren't going anywhere and since building my retirement home, I'm certainly not going anywhere! While I am a fan of keeping such relics (such as greatly engineered cardboard packaging) it doesn't make sense to store things that take up unnecessary space . Throwing away those boxes felt like throwing away MANY articles recently that I've had kicking around for decades. It was an uncomfortable feeling for a minor horder. I figured I'd save the kids from cleaning up my cluttered mess after I kick the bucket!

  4. 402's are for a KPT project of mine. Hopefully within 24 hours someone claims the boxes. If not, dumpster trip. I guarantee the speakers/horn lens's aren't going anywhere. At least not in my lifetime.

    I have to respectfully disagree with Coytee. I have successfully sold Heresy and Klipschorn boxes on eBay. I believe I got $200 plus shipping on the Klipschorn boxes.

  5. Trying to help out a fellow Klipsch member in here. How much for a clean pair of square k77m's these days. Actually, I will only be selling a singular k77m with a reported new diaphragm.

     

    As always, Thanks, Tony
