    I dug out these L26s that I picked up a few years ago. They're ready for foams.

    I remember when I was unloading them right after I bought them there was something loose in one.

    It wasn't until now that I opened the box and found my new Swedish wood chisel.

    More likely to find a bundle of pot!
    Wonder how good an insulator that would be. :smoke:

    Haha, you never know what you are going to find in some of these cabinets, a couple of rolls of cash would be nice but l guess a chisel will do. As NAD80 said, luckily it didn't cause any damage.

    BTW Jer l like your dog!

    Better put it back, it's probably an accoustic chisel :)

    Ha! A chisel, neat - at least you can use that. I found a vial full of 30+ year old speed in the L40's I bought a few years ago.

    Had it slowed down quite a bit at that point?

    Glad the OP got that chisel out of there. The speakers could have sounded a bit sharp in one channel.

    That's what gives the speakers such a sharp sound....

    I think the same thing every time I open up old gear. Ever since I heard the true story of the guy who found $37,000 in a vintage tube TV set.

    I thought for sure theee was a cool or crossover flopping around in there.

    I'll take the chisel over the dope every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Wonder what someone was doing with that chisel that ended up inside the speaker. Jer , welcome to AK. One thing is we got the point with that chisel.

    If a speaker has a front facing port (depending on the port) and children or grandchildren are involved, finding random things in a speaker is not totally uncommon.

    I have found Hot Wheels, toy soldiers, pens, pencils and so on.

    Yep. The chisel most likely went in through the tube.

    Actually I asked the previous owner what it was and if he wanted it back. He got a good laugh out of it and said "that was the old me, I must have stashed that in there in the early 80's. Just go ahead and chuck it". I'm sure many people stashed their weed and such in those ports. Almost all of my speakers have been acoustic suspension growing up so I had to come up with someplace else back then. :smoke:
