AR3 Grilles


Recommended Posts

Have my old AR3’s out of storage.  Can’t find the plastic grille frames that I broke taking them out.

Put my 3a frames in and see they aren’t tall enough with finagling with them.

Does anyone sell reproduced AR3 frames?

Hey Jim,

In the past I've glued small blocks of wood and velcro in the corners to hold the frame in the proper position. Not being a fan of the original snap-in arrangement, or synthetic material, I also use the 3a type of linen (which was also found on the last AR-3's).

Here are a couple AR3 grills I have in my parts collection. One is out of 1/4 in hardboard and the other plastic. The Masonite one has really warped.

I was wondering if cutting them out of 1/4 in. black acrylic would be a good option?

I had to make new grill frames for one of my set of 3s and used 1/4 MDF. My other set of 3s have 3a frames and used one for measurements. With the Melotone Saran material on the frame. It’s fits nice and snug. No Velcro needed.
