Arrow Re: 16x16 floor tom to snare drum.

Great job on the snare side slots. I have done this before on chrome. Not easy.

I restored a 1920's Leedy Pedal and Beater.

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.

Arrow Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

Fantastic Mr. Toast.
I always thought that the fantasia wrap was perhaps the best looking of all of the MIJ wraps.
I think you really scored on this one.
The kit is really great.
Great Job

Arrow Re: UK 70's Aluminium Snare

I think I heard that Purdie Shuffle cut the head rim in a few places to get them to fit on oversized shells. Apparently it works.

Arrow Re: 24" Kick drum
