Hello everyone!

I have recently started building another banjo. This one will have a wooden archtop tone ring but I'm having trouble finding all of the measurements I need to move further.

I found a diagram on StewMac but even it doesn't have all of the needed dimensions.

I still need to know how tall the wall on the left of the diagram is, how thick each wall is, and how far apart they are from each other.

If any of you know these measurements or have some way of finding them I would greatly appreciate it if you shared!

Here'some measurements from a 1960 Gibson 4 hole archtop ring.

Dang !! I just realized that the I.D. measurement should be 1.843" (not 1.343)
