Default Beware Fibes 70s Vintage Snare Drum SFT Strainer Excellent Condition Clean

On E bay again.
The tension knob hole is collapsing due to metal fatigue.

You're right, but it looks like it wouldn't be too hard to straighten it up and put one thicker washer on it that fits correctly instead of the off-centered ones that are stressing more on the one side.

Been there ,done that.
If the seller said hey, it's got a problem, and you're going to need to spend some time and money to get it fixed ,then I have no problem with the sale.
I don't think it's an original Fibes throw either as the tension knob is too small.

Agree with you. Should be upfront about it.
