Default Re: 24" Premier Bass Drum restoration

I decided to restore and refinish the bass drum hoops. I was sanding one hoop while the other was clamped for sitting the glue.
For my surprise, I noticed a weak small spot in the wrap strip. I pressed with my fingernail and figured out a termite "tunnel". With a small screwdriver I followed the tunels until I cant find anymore weak wood spots. I realized that another small whole I found before should be the same issue.
Any ideas to prevent more future damage before I fill the wholes and tunnels?

Hi John,
Wood dust play its role as a filler and make the epoxy blend more hоmоgeneity and strength.
Diisononylphthalate is a plasticizer which make the blend more elastic and gives good ability to process with various tools. That used in the production of wood and composite master-models.

Cheers,
George.

The bass drum is ready for action. There are a couple of things I want to do, like straighten up the tension rods and add missing washers. Anyway, I don't have free time to do it right now so I decided to put the heads on, to keep the shell and hoops with tension.
At first I decided to leave the hoops with that funky look but later I changed my mind. There were many cracks and dents. Now I think I made the right thing. The kit is in very nice condition and looking good. Cheers
