Re: ngage strainer, anyone tried it?
Honestly I really don't like the look of it. If it functions well then I'm sure anyone could learn to love it. I still think the trick is ugly but it is a very well made machine.
There is a guy in my area that makes stave drums and his shtick is to modify Tricks by shaving off most of the unnecessary bit of aluminum then polishing them to a mirror finish. I have tried with no success to get him to modify one of mine.
Any thought about modifying an existing part or would that leave you in the hole for the time invested? I haven't tried the strainer but it obviously must work excellently if it earned your praise. I just can't see spending that much on something that I felt was so lacking in the looks department.
