    4502 Grill Post Removal?

    How are those metal clips removed from the cabinets? I'm restoring a pair and it would make sanding much easier if they were removed.

    Not sure what you're speaking of - the grill posts are a plastic stud that in most instances if not broken can be gently twisted out with pliers, taking care not to squeeze them parallel to the groove - would be good to place a wood insert in the groove to relieve any stress while squeezing.

    Do you have a pic of what you are talking about? Not sure what metal clips you are referring to.

    This is the cabinet you have, the 4502?

    Are yours actually metal on the speaker cabinet baffle? normally, they are plastic cylinders, and easily twist out with a pair of pliers, taking care to put something in the slot so as not to break off the tops.

    Again, a pic of what you have would help to clear things up.

    Sorry, that metal piece is a new issue to me, I hadn't personally dealt with that before. I'm glad the other thread had a solution though.
