Disappointed that the ready made drum is not currently available. Had one turned for $30.00 plus postage of about $13.00. Very happy with the drum. Not so happy about the price.

The dimensions for Part P Top Hopper on the plans are T - 1 3/4, W - 1 3/8, and L - 2 1/4. I believe they should be - T 1 3/8, W - 1 3/4, and L 2 1/4. The 1 3/4 width now matches the width of part O - trough pivot block and both pieces fit correctly between the two N - pedestals pieces.

The plans are top notch and easy to follow. The disappointment is that the ready-made drum is no longer available. I don't turn wood so had to find someone to turn it for me. The ready-made drum is a very big asset to the plans.
