I need 2 of these. Just the wing nuts....I don't care about condition so long as not stripped....

I don't like the modern ones.......thank you.

Should be 1/4-20 thread but the regular wing nuts at the hardware store in that thread will be tiny in comparison. I have never been able to get regular wing nuts used in this application tight enough to hold the drum securely in place. Must have been a common problem as Ludwig soon switched to the more typical hex nuts for that.

Good luck, I'm sure someone has some to spare.

$0.43 at Ace Hardware - solved! I also bought a screw with a black plastic knob for the diamond plate for $3, and another plastic T-nut for the tom mount for $3.....done! Thanks, y'all...
