Default Any tips on removing metal shavings from a speakers magnet?

Two of my speakers inadvertently picked up some metal shavings on their magnets (motor’s).

I know it’s just an aesthetic issue, but does anyone have any tips or tricks to remove metal dust from a speaker magnet?

You could blow them off with compressed air or use freshly melted candle wax, perhaps even tape, like duct tape such as Gorilla tape.

Duct tape for sure.

Compressed air and metal shavings is a good way to end up with metal in your eye if you aren't careful.

When I first read this, I thought you were talking about shavings in the magnet gap!


That's a whole lot more fun to resolve.

Special thanks to all of the industry experts that share their knowledge here on the forum

Use a metal object thatís not magnetic but a magnet will stick to... sounds mad, but the magnet of the speaker will now have magnetised the metal shavings and they will now stick to a steel non magnetic object

use a stronger magnet

Believe it or not, this is what i do with tweeters. I magnetize my pic tools and get them close to the tweeters little crevices and it pulls out whatever metal objects may be in there.
