Pickups

Dynasonic Repairs-bobbin is loose in the surround

1

What can I use to reset a bobbin in the surround? I have a pickup that one side is able to be pushed down (gently) on a bridge pickup instead of the bakelite wafer being solid. It is also buzzing a little when played. What is the typical setting glue or adhesive used to set the bobbins in the surround?

When I've had to glue a DeArmond bobbin in its frame, I just do what they originally did. Run a bead of glue around the joint and push it in. I think I used gorilla glue or some other brown glue so that it looked original.

I remember seeing a brown semi-hard adhesive that looked like hide glue but maybe it was Barge or something similar. Silicon seal might work.

I was recommended silicone seal when I had a similar problem. Worked like a charm.

All of the modern ones are like that. They use a couple dabs of hot glue that doesn't stick. The newest ones have a riser with tabs to keep them from falling through. Get one of those, or a pair. The other one will come lose sooner or later.
