The drum is holding up well. I've done another one for a buddy who wanted to try it too. So far so good. I think it's a winner.

I think I had about .001" interference. I used loctite but I don't think it's needed since the ring can't go anywhere in the stackup.

I'm going to give one a try myself. Do you think just mild steel would be ok ? Since you used tool steel or should i look to a better material..Thanks for your help.

Mild steel should work fine. I only used tool steel because I have access to lots of it.
