Recone it yourself
This drops right in
Instructions included, and also on Youtube
OK, the kit should be on the way so I went ahead and started. I have one hour in it so far. The "trick" if you will is to scrape while the acetone is still in a liquid state. Once it looks dry the glue has turned hard again.
This reminds me a lot of automotive projects. A good half of the time is spent cleaning up the parts that will be re-used, and you have to do a good job or the repair will fail.
If I had to do a lot of re-cones all the time I would invest in a dremel for sure
I re-coned some RCF 18's and it went very well
Not a real big learning curve actually
Two most important things.
Make sure the gap is absolutely clean!
Make sure you have that sucker shimmed dead center before you glue the web down
Thanks for the encouragement! I had reached the same conclusion and ordered one of those this morning.
I also heard back from Eminence on the topic of what other cones might be installed in the basket of the JAY6130. The answer was that there are no other cone kits that can be used in this model. Apparently, even though the basket looks just like the Delta Pro basket, the gap is smaller and the Delta Pro coil will not fit. Note also that the kit you linked to is an aftermarket kit as Eminence does not offer one. Fortunately reconekits.com does offer an inexpensive alternative.
Hopefully this will work out great and this puppy will be back "on the road" in a week or so.
