I found these in a pump house. They had been there for 20 years. Lucky the shells were round, and the wrap was tight. Lots of polishing and cleaning. See last picture.

You, sir, are a resto king.

I love any and all resto pics, as I also do my own work.

I'd like to see how you did the bearing edges. Before, during and after. Every vintage wooden drum I own has needed bearing edge leveling and restoration.

For me, it's the most critical step, as it actually affects the sound of the drum, not just the appearance.

I use a sanding table which is a piece of birch plywood with sandpaper glued to it for the leveling, a surplus granite counter top to check the leveling, and then a router table for the bearing edge restoration.

A small roundover cut on the outside and a 45 on the inside. Many passes cutting a little more off each time to preserve as much wood as possible. Then ease a little sharpness off with hand sanding.

It's not exactly like the original factory edges (which were not necessarily that great when they shipped), but it's also not a modern 45/45 knife edge.
