RE: Repair of oil cloth surround on alnico woofer

Please take what I say with a copious amount of salt, as I don't know if my ideas will actually work.

I think I see 2 things in the photo: adhesive failure and rust. The surround itself seems to be intact. Brush any loose rust away with a SOFT toothbrush. Then, use a rust converter, like Duro Extend, applied sparingly, with a Q-tip. After the chemical reactions have completed and any solvents evaporated, reattach the surround to its seat with contact cement. Epoxy and cyanoacrylate strike me as being dead wrong.
