I bought a nice used banjo but unfortunately is has blemishes on the resonator edges from having been left sitting on some rubber tubing on a banjo stand. It appears the nitrocellulose has raised in the areas of contact. I posted this a few months ago and got nice response on how to repair this damage. Subscribed to the topic with the intention of going back to it when I got around to working on the repair. It looks like all of my past activity has been removed so I no longer have access to the very good advice I received. I do recall that I need to shave down the raised spots with a one sided razor blade burnished to mimic a cabinet scraper. I do have one of these already that I made from information from Frets.com and it works very well. I can't remember the following instructions I got on how to touch up and blend these areas with lacquer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks all!

This happened to my 1973 Martin Vega and it bummed me out. Damaged the resonator and binding. Thanks for the repair info.
