Diaphragm thicknesses as a reference

Post by MicaMonster »

This is an ongoing project for me, but for now here are the current thicknesses measured from original diaphragms. I think it could be a wonderful thing if we can all contribute to this list and make a loose reference. For example, what are the thicknesses for a Columbia Graphophone BC? Or any of the Pathé cylinder machines? Diaphragm thickness is important!
