Hats off to you Jon , looking good(y)
Aluminum not very nice to them drums . You have local place get them ? I get 1.25 and 3/4 ones but that’s it and Amazon you need to get all the sizes and that sucks because only use 1.25 and smaller
It's not nice at all bro. I get my packs from Menards they run like 8 bucks for all of them. I use all of it haha

Also you can use sandpaper and zip tie them around the drum size you need. Works good enough lol

Never thought of that ! My problem is the 1/2 inch one ya don’t use it much but handy for the smaller frames the bigger drums hard keep ‘em tight always want to ride up . I crank them down to the point I think I am going snap off the threaded part but doesn’t seem to matter

It works lol it's pulled through for me more than once. How do you fasten it down? I always use a smaller washer with a bigger one up top it's really pushes on the drums and keeps them locked in!

Just actually got new inserts my 3/4 one in tough shape and I think why the drums not lasting so good . But it’s like twice the money to get just the one I need ! So I got a pack of them more crap to find a home to store Amazon sometimes make me scratch my head
Looking good buddy. Those look full size. What do they measure tip to tip?
