Arrow Re: Where can I find another lug like this?

Center to Center spacing for a Rogers beavertail snare lug is 1 7/8". Hope it fits. If close, but too tight, use a round file to open the holes up.

Arrow Re: Collar tension screws odd MIJ hex heads-got any?

Have you figured out the thread size of the rods? Replacing with standard type square head rods would be nice. DFD has some MIJ rods. Good Luck Sir.

The kit is really great.
Great Job

Arrow Re: UK 70's Aluminium Snare
