The Legend of the Glass Klipschorn

Once upon a time in the early 70’s, a Plexiglas artist paid a visit Klipsch, deciding this would be a great project. The president of the company at the time, along with the artist and some help in the cabinet shop by the Khorn builder, spent over 1000 hours building it. Very tight tolerances were required for the gaps to be almost imperceptible. To adhere, solvent was injected into the joints with a hypodermic syringe. They were having a sticking-issue with one of the joints when PWK came by, grabbed the offending part, and slathered it with epoxy. The artist broke down in tears…literally.
Apparently they corrected the issue, as there is no sign of PWK’s handiwork.
And they lived happily ever after.
