drummer2k: What instrument or tool(s) did you use to cut the bearing edges?

Brilliant wrap!

If you're looking for ways to innovate your drumbuilding; pvc pipes for tom shells or aluminum/steel car wheels as shells for snares...? ;)

i have this nifty little router type hand tool with a little guage where you set the angle and a ball bearing rolls along under the tip to make sure your cut is consistant. i have no idea what this is even called or a brand. i bought it used from a local guy here that used to do drum building. its neat though. although it doesnt have any way of doing good rounded edges.

and yes, pvc makes for good cheap octabans.

That's an AWESOME snare. What kind of wood did you use? What's the thickness of the shell? What kind of snare wires? Good job!

Hey dt2k, Love the idea for the snare wrap. Im just pissed I didnt think of it first! Ive been thinkin about rewrapping my Tama kit but have zero experiance building, or wrapping drums. So you know of any places that can make and install a wrap that I design?
