My 2034 has had a bad nose since I adopted it. So with my new smoke detector lens, I went to work. First, I enlarge the hole with a dremel tungsten bit. I used the lens as is. It was a little long but I left it stick inside about 3/16th or so. I touched up the out rim with a dab of epoxy and flat acrylic paint.

The nose to nose is the 2018 to the right, original.


Fixed to work.

T-Man,

FABULOUS creative use of that smoke detector lens. A near perfect fit (ala Dremel), with wonderful results.

When I need to enlarge an existing hole "just a touch", I find that "tracing" around the inside of the hole with one of my diamond-burr Dremel bits gives me nice fine-tune control.

Given that lenses origin, it's not gonna start beeping/blaring when you fire up the smoke unit on that 2034, is it?!?!?

Cheers,

TJ
