    Sacrelige after 6 months of putting together with Slingerland parts. Kind thought though.

    Well now you know about Slingerland parts. I've never seen fittings freeze like on a Slingerland..they take the American- out of Rogers Gretsch and Ludwig- the cake.

    I tried tightening a second tom on a twin tom hmm 1970-69 set I used- I subbed. No need to bring drums . Use 'Robbie's they are in the truck.
    Fine.
    the t-screw was froze on the tom mount. Wouldn't loosen. Wouldn't tighten.
    I know when you can and when you can't when you have a chance and when you don't have a chance- with metal.

    I lost. It won.
    But the 'feel' of the metal I could tell was (unlike Ludwig, W&A, the other companies..

    I love all my parts.

    I had parts on my yamaha,sonor,pearl,gretsch and modern drum shop go bad...

    It's called drum hardware.

    Rogers is worst...those lugs are horrific

    You live and you learn.

    I thought it was a good suggestion that you made.

    yet not totally familiar w/ Rogers. Slingerland some fittings seem like dense soft aluminum and there's no correcting that.

    Well, at least I bought a cymbal tonight.

    Maybe this is why they eventually added double spurs (two on each side) to the Buddy kits in the 70s. It's not so much that they suffer from over-tightening as just plain tightening. I had several Slingy cymbal tilters & tom leg holders go bad from "normal" use over the years - never a bass drum strut holder though.

    I assume you're talking about Rogers BnB-lugs (pre 1963) which all cracked.
    The Beavertail lugs from 1963 and onwards are absolutely bulltproof!!
    BnB-lugs (double-ended only so far) are now available NEW!
