Default Re: Vintage W&A Kit Restoration

I did a test run and hung both toms from the stand... no sag, no bending at all! The tom arm and steel straps hold the toms securely, in-place. I can angle the spade arms, so it should be easy to put them where I want them and have them stay where I put them. There was no jiggling when I hit the 13". That Rogers Swivo stand is like a concrete pier for the toms. I am using the red felt that came inside the bass drum to make the inside liners for the steel rings. Gives me an opportunity to recycle something that came with the kit. It's great old felt, dense, strong. Everything is chugging along. More shortly.

John
