Hope you're doing well after your carpal tunnel procedures, Curtis. Looking forward to when you can get back at this project.

Yeah, hope your recovery is a speedy one! Hand injuries are always the worst, but I bet before you know it you'll be back with a stick in one hand and a tin of Bar Keepers Friend in the other!!

Wow! Thanks guys it does mean a lot!

My right hand has felt better everyday since my surgery two weeks ago. I am using it for most every day things just not at full strength yet.

Tomorrow I will go in for my left hand. I can't wait for all of this to be complete and be back to full strength in both hands so I can get back to work on all kinds of things in my life!

Thanks again for the positive support! I love this forum!

Best
Eric Curtis

Hey, Eric. Good to see this kit progressing - I've actually got a couple of large kits in the works, and some Cortex removal in my future, too. Hope you can get this project moving forward again soon!

I stripped a 26x16 drum that was wearing cortex. I used a industrial heat gun, and yes you can burn the shop down it you don`t pay attention! They make adhesive remover that works pretty good. Wear eye protection and gloves and don`t breath the fumes. It is some heavy duty stull. I don`t recall the brand name , but I bought it at Ace hardware.
God luck man. Tommy

Hey Eric, have you been able to work on these drums since your surgeries? I'm looking forward to your next update. Hope the rehab is going well.

Ya Hows it going? Feeling better yet, I hope so. If you want to do a maple thermogloss finish on these let me know, I have the satin for you.

Getting back to my Bonham project this last week. Got the glue off the bass drum and started plugging holes last night. Needs some more sanding. Plug cutters are a mans best friend for this type of thing. Special thanks to that 60's club date "donor shell" that keeps on providing new life for other projects to keep living!
