Good morning, Aal_!

I got a few new to me doors in recently with a mini I picked up, and one of them had a magnet in backwards. Gave that corner of the door a good soak in some acetone to dissolve the super glue, and proceeded to slap it against a piece of wood, took about thirty good whacks but that magnet eventually jumped out. The piece of wood was the edge of my hobby computer table and now it's a little chewed up ...the table that is, the door is fine.
That's about the only way you can do it.
When I've had to reinstall magnets, a couple times, I mark them with just a dot with a Sharpie marker, to be sure I have the polarity right, before super gluing them in.
It didn't take the paint off? or was it a TRA? How long did you soak it? I'd asked Rob about that, and he said it would remove the paint.
It was a TRA, but I did use a q-tip and kept dabbing the acetone onto the magnet area, with paint, you'd probably want to mask off the front of the door, or even go as far as to mask off everything but a small circle around the magnet.
oh ok........thanks. Might give it a shot. A solder iron didn't work
you really got to slap it pretty hard to dislodge them magnets. If I had to do it over again, i might just rubber band the door to a paint stirrer stick to get more force, but you don't want to bend it either, just a real sharp tap tap tap.
maybe silly...but I put a very slight bow in the door...no need for magnets anymore.
we were using a more powerful magnet which is what I'd heard Rob uses, but didn't work. Don't have access to the solder anymore. That was on the trip to Florida over a year ago. Don't really need the door right now, have another one, just don't like it as much. Will get it out eventually or will send it in when I finally send in another one that needs some work.
newp, not silly, lots of folks do that
Welcome back, Debadoo! I hope you're feeling lots better!
thanks hun! I can walk ok now, but still pretty rough.
I did not know that you could get a REO mod with a power button on the side..I've been to Rob's site many times but never seen the side buttons..............cool......I like side buttons........nice mod you have..................
awwwwwwwww a purple hug! Love it! ((((((((((((dancin)))))))))
They've been out maybe a couple years. They are wonderful and just recently became in stock permanently on the website. (hint hint)
I have visited the Reo site a few times in the past but never noticed the side buttons.......maybe because I am looking at the Reo Grandes and not the P67 model.....I just see on the reo site that the P67 gives you side fire button but the Reo Grande is top fire.....
they haven't been on the site long. Before that they were just released when he got some done up and there were F5 wars to get one. Welcome to the thread. I'm guessin you don't have a Reo, but are interested in em. You're welcome to ask anything you like if you have questions. This thread doesn't get as much traffic as the lounge though, but you can use either one. Here's the lounge link
The Reonauts new lounge
Thank you!.....for the welcome.......I have a million mods but no Reo Mod yet.........lol........
We can fix that for ya! But I warn ya, you'll have no more use for those other million ones once ya get a Reo. Both the grand and p67 are great. What type of attys do you like? mtl, lung hits? Do you build? Have you used mechs?
