SeanT -- thank you for the compliment! Very kind.
The 252 is a neat piece of gear. I played one for a while-- it had a great feel. I imagine yours turn out 'better than factory' too!

I just picked up a Speed King from a local flea market. Decent shape, moves nicely. Missing toe bolt and beater is not Ludwig. I may follow up with you on a restore job in the next month or so.
