You can do the whole job for $1.95... Bolt that fits through vent hole, some washers and a nut to tighten/squeeze everything together. Done deal.

Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

The first set of drums I ever played was a 3-ply black lacquer Ludwig maple kit. 'That sound' got stuck in my ears and now even 50+ years later it is the sound I use to compare all other drums to....

Re: Removing old paint from wooden hoops...

No John! Worse thing you can do with lead paint is sand it/vaporize it and put it into the air. Unless the mask being worn is rated to screen lead particles, regular paint masks won't do the trick....
