The edges were in 1965 Slingerland factory condition when I received the drums so there were no major flaws.
They were mainly dirty and there was some wrap glue on them in some areas.
If would have been foolish to do a total recut.
I know you checked them, you pedantic old bugger, I was just curious as to how ;) ;) ;)

You're dead on about the recut. On older shells, especially on single ply shells, deeply recutting an edge can release all manner of stresses, & that may have serious implications for the shell's form. If it's not f(*^((* don't fix it.
