I have a vintage Slingerland snare stand, basket style from 1960s. But....the base is too high to fit my 14x8 Colisuem snare. I wonder... Is it possible to cut out a section in middle and solder(or weld) the remains together?

I did that to a Slingerland snare stand to make a very short stand for a floor Tom that didn't have legs. I used a Slingerland stand with the legs that fold out from the bottom. As I recall the adjustment fitting at the top of the base tube was friction fitted on. I knocked it off the tube, then shortened the tube with a pipe cutter. Then I put the adjustment part back onto the top of the shortened tube. Worked well.

Sometimes you have to punch out a roll pin, or maybe a set screw or rivet. Take off the clamping part, saw off a short section from the insert pipe and the receiving pipe, redrill for set screw or roll pin, put back together. Shouldn't be any welding. Have done more than a few of these customizations.
