Anybody know of this obscure drum maker?? I have stumbled upon one of his prototypes from the 50's, complete with schematics/patent paperwork, etc.

Promised ide be back!! not the kit yet BUT

Ide tried four times to get some perspex to bend and here,s
what i eventually got!!!,
NO NO , not the end product, but well on the way,
first pic is all the components, ye not many, however
the perspex sheet had to be bound and put in an oven,'coff'
needs must when your not a drumbuilder.i did ask for advice!
anyway, second pic has the two internal rings fixed at equal distance from top and bottom as per original shell as to exact the size for the top fixed tacked hoops,the hoops shown in pic 2 are the inner hoops and just used to hold the shape,the tacked outer hoops still need to go on, thats my next problem,, AT THIS STAGE IN MY
PROCEEDURE ANY HELP WOULD BE MOST WELCOME. THANK YOU!!!
P/S, in pic one the perspex sheet is a flat sheet at the rear of the
hoops and internal mechanism, as if you didnt know?
anyway, PICS,

you know exactly what i mean, i'll post some more pics
when i get the mothers off of the shell!
ok, the rings on top of the perspex shell are the inner rings they are just there as a means to hold the shape,temporary ,then with the internal mechanism fitted they will eventually fit under the outer hoops,'not displayed yet' like a type of circlip that fits snugly between the head and outer hoop then the internal mech pushes the head upwards and forces the inner ring/circlip into place in the rim'pardon the expression' under the tacked outer rim,***k me i could go on forever trying to explain this, pics tomorrow, CJ,

Hey Paul - d'you mean the top and bottom ring like these
http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee456/tipekass/20112011238.jpg
If so could you use a pop riveter to fix them to the perspex shell ? You'd have to carefully mark and drill all the holes using the hoop as a template then rivet. I know it won't be the same as the original tacks/rivets but it is only for demo purposes !
I would try the pop rivets on some scrap perspex first to make sure it doesn't destroy it !
Good luck !

No idea where all the other posts went, Anyway, im on with a snare, cut down a 12" shell i had spare, which wasnt to difficult,to 6.5. had to measure from the center though as the one key tuning hole is there,
the internal mechanism cut down was a little more worrying, would it work cutting it down that short,answer, yep it works,far from finished, as i had to drill out the 50 domed head studs/rivets on either hoop, so if anyone knows of a source to replace them im all ear's, anyway a pic, thanks for looking, http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee456/tipekass/WP_20140315_001_zps7b3d8434.jpg
