Re: Should I shellac my luan shells?

Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

I ship sets like that all the time for well under $100. The guy is clearly a ripoff artist looking for a gullible mark.

Re: 13" Tom restoration trouble

Re: Is car wax safe for wrap finishes?

Vintage drum wraps are not plastic, they are celluloid acetate. Made from chemically treated wood fibers. Since this is a vintage drum forum I am assuming you are talking about vintage drums. In any...

Yeah more or less I guess. I mean I didn't smelt it from iron ore but I did use a grinder and a tap and die to thread it.

Re: Need Bearing Edge Advice

Tried it tonight with a 1/4 inch bit. I still got a bit of a ridge but was able to remove it with a light sanding, perfect roundover after that. Quite pleased with how it turned out.

Need Bearing Edge Advice

I usually cut 45s or double 45s. But I need to cut some vintage style roundovers. What kind of router bit do I need and are there any special instructions or tips?

Re: Please Help Me Identify This Cymbal
