If a man were to sit down to build a bunch of snares, form seating/comfort to tools, what's the one thing he/she would wish they had to make the job most efficient? Is it most efficient to complete a snare or better to complete by steps?

A bench mounted sweger, for sure. Some kind of ruler or at least a mark on the table/bench for quickly measuring your cable.

IMO it's much easier to do it in steps than snare by snare.

All components well organized within easy reach. Visions of a nice big fur check would be nice, too. Good luck with that. And, just for the record, AC/DC and Metallica.


Mistakes are proof you are trying.

Swagers are needed for making cable extensions.
A telephones is all you need for snares.
You just call Newt.

That's where the cable and parts came from, up to me to assemble.
