I've recently acquired a Cleveland Rogers Holiday kit with bread and butter lugs. Unsurprisingly some are cracked...on the bass drum quite a few.

Many years ago, before I was a Rogers owner, I would see posts like this one in here and elsewhere about a fix using auto putty and various templates. Now I look at these links all the pix are hazed out for reasons I'm not sure of (possibly the hosting has moved elsewhere). http://brogersownersforum.runboard.com/t2642?fbclid=IwAR3coMMLhuP8EcW539GpIevVQ6P0nps56ed5uEdS3BpNdpvpZ3IK7y1Vlf4

So the short version....can anyone repeat the instructions with, most importantly, clear pictures so I know what I'm meant to be doing?

I know the "new Rogers" has made alloy B&Bs for the snares and one might hope this develops into bass drum and tom lugs further down the line (though I'm guessing the finances of getting that all tooled up would be mad) but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I'm also well aware Jim Petty makes these but they were expensive to start with without the Australian dollar being at an all-time low against the greenback.

But, most importantly, I'm doing some serious cosmetic restoration on this really nice kit and restoring the lugs comes under that heading. All help gratefully accepted.

Sweetwater sound has one size. I also recently saw someone on Facebook had fit broken bb lugs over tube lugs. That seems clever.

Hi antipodes, I'm the guy who perfected this method and posted that thread in the Rogers forum. Unfortunately, Photobucket changed their business model and forced users to pay for what used to be free, and their monthly subscription is way too high!

In 2012, I reposted the thread in the DFO's restoration forum with, unfortunately, the same photo issues. When I get some time, I'll upload the photos directly. Sorry about that!

Here's that thread. Check it out in a few days after I post the pics:

Hi Antipodes. I uploaded the photos just now. PM me if you have questions on the process.
