I’ve been going through my drum parts trying to organize and re-familiarize.

I came across a bag of older parts and within that bag a few things stuck out.

I said to myself; well that’s kind of interesting so here they are.

Anyone want to take a crack at identify them?

Perhaps you have an odd, cool, destinct part you’d like to post in this thread to see if anyone knows it’s origin?

The third picture is a Gretsch lug.
The first and last pictures look familiar, but my memory fails me for now.

yea on 3
4 looks like...wow...could be used to replace (wrench) nut on a w&a rail consolette with a nice handy hand screw.
(reminds me of the Slingerland BR cymbal stand lower bolt)
nice parts.

The second pic down is a tensioner for the bottom (legs) of a Camco/Slingerland cymbal/snare stand base.

I believe that the first picture is a pair of cymbal stand clamp wing nuts (and bolt) from a MIJ stand. I'm thinking the 70's or early 80's super lightweight entry level metric stuff from Percussion Plus or some similar brand.
Third picture is a Gretsch lug.
Fourth picture looks like the leg clamp wing bolts from the very early RIMS floor tom suspension mounts. The ones that used only 2 "T" shaped legs. I'm sure that isn't the only place that style part was used however.

#4 are early 70's Pearl adjustment bolts from their cymbal stands,and the hex arm tom holders.T-handles are 3-piece,with press-in wings.Hard to find intact.Sometimes the "wing" part falls out and gets lost.Carriage bolt fits tom brackets,bass drum brackets,and cymbal stands.
