Needing some BB Specs

From Hunter Lemon on 11/11/2020 7:27:32 PM

I was planning to build a 1926-style BB tone ring (eventually), and was wanting to get some specs so I can know what materials to get.

What are the three tonehoops made of? 

What are the outer diameters of each of the hoops?

How thick is the wall of the hollow hoop?

What is the height of the rim for a BB?

What is the height of the whole pot assembly?

Thanks!

Should I have any of my ball bearing banjos apart, I will take measurements
