Not sure how it got loose, because I am the only owner and it has not been hauled around that much or hit very hard. Thanks to all who posted.
We used to repair rivets on restaurant cookwarethe same way.... I did not want to suggest it, since I had never tried it on drum hardware before.
If you stick around here long enough, a solution will come forth from a member with experience solving most any problem that someone needs help with. It's amazing. Glad your repair went well.
