Hello all...
Is there a resource for grille cloth board? I have a Philco 16B cathedral that needs both the cloth and the board. I also need to figure out what the original cloth looked like.

Hello Don, this photo is pretty much a match as to what to look for in a grille cloth.

I have a 16B cath that looks much the same. Awhile back I helped another ARF member out with his board, at the moment I can't remember the the name of the board he used. but it can be bought at a craft store like Michael's,it is about 1/8 thick fiberboard black in color.

Depending on how thick the original board was , I have used the stiff cardboard from old three ring binders.
Just cut away the outside plastic and you have a pretty good board, although it is not big enough for a console.
Cut you opening for the speaker and mounting holes, attach the grill cloth and your ready to install.

I have made the baffles out of thin SRBP, think it was 1.5 to 2.0 mm. Is a nice solid job that wont fall apart again but does take a little machining skill. Roughed the glue surface up with a coarse sander.
