I restored a 1966 set of these a couple years ago, but never thought about the pre-66 aluminum rims you mention and picture (great image, by the way), Cuco. Are these available anywhere? I'd be...

Re: Success! Removing chrome from Supraphonic

I kept going in increments of 200 grit from 600 through 1,000, alternating directions each change of grit. Then i put it on the wheel.
This was crucial in getting the final high polished chrome look...

Re: Success! Removing chrome from Supraphonic

As far as getting right into the crotch of the bead, I used little 3 inch pop-sickle sticks. Just wrapped the paper around one two or three times and as you can see in the last image, it gets right...

Re: Success! Removing chrome from Supraphonic

Once that hurdle was cleared, I could start working it. First step - dual action orbital sander to take the anodized surface down to the same aluminum I would be facing with the Supra.

Wet? Dry?...

Re: Slingerland Snare

A Hot Wheels wheel! That's a new one on me. Better check the old VCR for a peanut butter sandwich while you're at it. :) Great project drum!
