Default Re: Star snare drum 'Super Strainer No.940' buildup

Hello teverson-sr and Mark,

Thank you very much indeed for taking care of my 'small' prob.

@teverson-sr: it's hard to see in the pic, but the 'ribbon' is a flat clear plastic band (you may see the reflexion of it in the casing, to the outside).

@Mark: your assistance is simply outstanding.
Your first pic showed in a tiny detail one difference to my mounting: the lever's bottom part shows to the knob - and not to the shell (like in my drawing).

Good eye on that!
Indeed, the handle was from (wrong?) usage deeply carved by the cutout - the cut is going almost half through the handle now and I've put a small protecting metal sheet in tube-shape over the cut.

I'll reassemble my strainer in short and hopefully it will be working well again. I'll let you know.

Thanks again so much.

Cheers, Ralf
