    Great work! I had to widen two holes on my Mangini snare to change the snare throw-off and it was also stressful (and the original holes were already there).

    True. I've done it many times (even with Masterworks shells).

Just the thought of drilling into perfectly good shells is like nails on a chalkboard to me. As you probably know, the depth of mounted toms can be a bit shorter than those with legs. And, the air hole is right smack in the middle of the shell on mounted toms...I believe it's closer to the batter side on toms with legs. This being my situation, I still decided to go through with drilling holes into the shell. One leg bracket is supposed to be located right below the air hole which presented a little bit of a problem because I wanted to align them exactly as if they were meant to already have leg brackets installed. There was no way around this so, I just drilled below the air hole. My leg brackets aren't exactly where they're supposed to be. They're slightly closer to the resonant side than a normal floor tom's leg brackets would be. Regardless, I'm happy with how it all turned out.
    You did a nice job.

    The only other option would have been to use the existing air vents for the top holes of the rear leg brackets and then drilling another air vent hole on the adjacent panel.

    Another option (without drilling) for adding floor tom legs to any tom (or snare) is to use the Pearl MUH10-T mounts (which are very small ISS type clamps).

    They can be attached anywhere between the lugs on the bottom hoop and then receive a 3/8" rod (including floor tom legs). Three of them can be positioned on any 10"-16" drum with metal rims to receive floor tom legs.

    Nah, just an extra vent hole

    It looks great! Very good, clean work.

    Looks really great! I find the idea of drilling into my drums pretty unsettling, but I have thought about doing this with mounted floor toms before. Nice work

    Looks like you did great job and I'll bet that drum sings more now with the legs than it did when it was mounted. I know for a fact mine did. I love your kit too. Natural rules!! Here is a couple pics of my 15x14 MBX tom that was mounted that I converted to a floor with legs. The sustain was overwhelmingly better once the legs were attached. So glad I did it. Here are couple pics for you to see. Not trying to derail your thread, but wanted you to see it.
