Re: Rogers Collet Thread Size?

kdg has the right idea.

Re: Rogers Collet Thread Size?

Take a collet nose to a real specialty hardware store - Not Home Depot who will have standard sizes.
Using a thread gauge, it looks like 3/4 - 20 tpi.

Re: WMP Rogers Fullerton double bass

Nice setup. If you reverse the basses, you could have a different hardware setup on the right side. Even swap the cymbal mounts to keep the L arm on right? Lots of possibilities to play around...

Re: Rogers Collett Mounts

These are the noses/collets. Left is the older / machined style. Right is the newer / cast style. Note the cracking in the cast style. They thread onto the mount plate base.

Re: Rogers Collett Mounts

Re: Rogers Collett Mounts

These stops will indeed take the weight of the arms and you only need to tighten the collets enough to keep from rotating. Easier all the way around for tightening.

Depending on size, I have put...

Re: Cleaning of an old Multi Clamp (Tama MC6)

Re: Rogers 18" Floor toms

I find 4 leg 18" toms as early as a 1967 catalog thru 1975 catalogs. And 3 legs seem to start in the '76/77 and later catalogs. Maybe one of the first 3 leg models?

Re: Rogers Details

Interesting. Never seen a 3 hole mount. Wonder if someone cut and rechromed a mount?

Re: New Dynomatic Tom Arm

Re: Maybe legit... but may not

Re: New Scam

Definitely a scam. Not seen this for a while, but old formula to take our money. Post the jpg with the contact info to avoid ebay text fraud detection.
