    strengthening dowels

    how do u guys get your dowels strong enuff to stretch fleece over. i hot glued mine and to no avail they collapse after a little stretching. im trying resin/sawdust right now, dont know how that will do. but i know for sure they arent going to be identical on each side. this *****

    Re: strengthening dowels

    its why you dont use dowels and hot glue, cut some angled pieces of wood to prop the speaker ring etc up, and screw it in to place. will be very sturdy for the fleece. also the resin drying makes heat, which can met the hot glue.

    Re: strengthening dowels

    I used construction adhesive. Takes awhile to set but once it does it will hold alot more than fleece stretching.

    I showed you how to do it before with the 2 x 4. Nothing can beat it.

    Re: strengthening dowels

    im not really sure if it really makes a difference, but i used high temp hot glue over low temp. i made somewhat of a mess on my base mdf where the dowels sit and had a hard time even scraping it off.

    that's what i was just going to suggest. the high temperature glue will hold Way better then the low temp.

    Once again I'm with you 2 x4, 1x2. I like something with more surface area. It only makes since the more stable the brace by itsef is. The more stable the baffles will be when pulling a fleece over them

    ^^ the best way but if your rings are already cut with the center missing not gonna be applicable for this box, thats why I said construction adhesive.
