Hello Andy. What sort of adhesive was used on the Acoustat esl\'s to bond the wires to the stator frame assembly and what was the technique used for applying it? Jack Sutton.

Thanks for asking this question, as it has motivated me to finish work on my Acoustat Factory - Photo Tour. This is a series of photos taken at the Acoustat factory, showing the construction of the panels and finished speaker. The ”glue” is styrene pellets dissolved in methylene chloride (a nasty solvent) to yield a thick syrup-like liquid. This glue was applied by an automated machine. See the photos for how this was done!
