Thanks, but motorboards are something different. I am speaking of the composite that the fabric is mounted on. 

 

Looking for commercially produced, not crafting my own.

Just an idea; took my old frames to the local high school wood shop and had the instructor create a new set for me. They have CNC router tables. He refused payment.

Have some old cane grills for my Cornwall 1's that need new cane and the backing board.

Also looking to swap my black Heresy II grills for cane.

 

Thanks!

Here is a picture of  the Klipsch cane material ,  from  my  Heresy Grilles  -

The cane is somewhat stained @001. A light scrubbing did not improve. Also the board that the cane is stapled to, needs replacing.

  if I hear of CW 1 cane grilles for sale, I will get back with you -

Sounds like you are replacing the grill board. Carefully remove the cane fabric and hand wash it in a tub with warm water and a mild detergent. I've done it to cane grills from heresies. I use Woolite detergent. I used a fabric brush as well to clean the fabric, they came out so much better after. Good luck

@MacWorks   why dont you try this   ?   take  Linseed oil and apply  to cotton swabs  , then superficially dab on a section of the fabric , do you see any improvements  , I am wondering if the fabric is dried , versus stained  ?

I hope dtr20's suggestion works for you.

I know you want to stay original, but if it ends up you cant, several here have used Mojotone cane fabric. Google them, search "cane". They have two that are close. I used the tighter weave but the looser "English" weave should word as well. They dont have that second layer that you see up close on the original but from a couple feet away, look very close
