wje, thanks for the anecdote.  I had been thinking I would make something out of wood on the lathe that would just put pressure on the outer edge of the driver, but I expect a socket of the correct size will do the same thing. I will be trying it.   I am planning to use this method to install the drivers in my cups.  I will sand the cups to the exact size (trial and error) and then press the drivers into them.  It should make installation and removal much easier. And I'm...
Great!  I really appreciate it.  I'll PM you if I muck up my housing and need a replacement. 
Can you describe how you did it?  I appreciate the offer of the housings.  I may have to take you up on it.
Does anyone know of a method of removing the grado drivers without destroying the plastic housing they're glued into at the factory?   I can easily cut out the drivers but I'd like to save the factory housing.  If I don't like the woodies I'd like to return to my present mod which I really like..
Great!  Nothing quite as good as functional and on sale.  I'll check the local RS in a couple of minutes.
Which model of the Auvio will fit?  I am looking for a relatively inexpensive set of headphones to use as a holder for my experimental Alessandro driver based woodies.  I'm into function, not appearance or comfort, and my woodies presently are 50mm diameter.  I can reduce them further if necessary to fit the frame. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
I wanted to buy those but I found reviews that said they weren't as good as the Grados.  I paid $50 for the Grados.   If you search you can find details.
I have done the MS1 extension out of plumbing pipe and GS1000 pads and I really like it. Now I am making limba wood cups, including an extension, with the side wall 1-2mm thicker than the original.   I plan to take the driver out of the original and then install it in the wooden cups (oiled and sanded to a tight fit) the same distance from the outside "grid" as the original.  I will use GS1000 pads.   Does anyone know if this is likely to result in a perceived...
Thank you for the information.  I have glued the limba blocks and will start on the lathe tomorrow.  I will probably approach the first set as a prototype and build them the same way you did, so that I don't have to resolder them too much. Thanks for the info.  
That's amazing!  I expect you can use them regardless of thickness.  Just plane them down then cut and glue to the desirfed thickness. This could affect the sonic qualities, but I don't expect it would be too much.  I will be interested to hear what others think.
