I have always wondered what the wee slider
thing was for.  Now I know.  That was the most
useful post I have read in years.

Many years ago I used the nozzle on a vacuum
cleaner to repair a tweeter on a Monitor Audio
speaker.  Although it worked, the final result
didn't look very pretty.  I would therefore
suggest trying the cardboard tube first.
