    Default Sealing Bearing Edges

    I had the bearing edges re-cut on my toms by Precision Drum Company a few months ago. They didn't seal the bearing edges and I want to know what to use to do them? If anyone has done this before I would appreciate some input.

    natural bees wax is an excellent sealer for bearing edges and help the heads seat better. I try to re-apply some every time I change the heads.

    I spray sanding sealer onto a cotton rag and wipe on the edges. I also apply wax before putting on a drumhead...

    I have a kit that needs some additional sanding on the edges. What grit sandpaper should I use??
