Ribbon waste offered by USA ebay vendor, beware

BEWARE - an expensive trip to the bin, vendor informed, these have no use at any level except landfill...

when my cat sprayed up against the Scintilla bass panel recently, destroying it with acidic nastiness, I gave a few sq ft of the undamaged material to the boy next door, who's using it when making models of American lorries and spaceships!

Looking forward to getting the refurb'd (again) speakers back from Jon

They have one obvious use...

For someone looking to copy them they are a source of information. At the very least, one would determine the material used (especially the mylar), the pattern cut, the corrugation. Not entirely useless information.

But certainly not at that price. Far from it!
