Mounting Calf Heads

I am a recent [re]convert to calf heads (my first kit in 1964 had them), and have scoured the web to find information on how to do my own. Here are two videos I encountered that I would like to share. While the videos are for calf heads on banjos (and there are differences when tucking drum heads), some of the principles are the same. In particular, measuring, preparation and care.

Part of my research revealed that "tucking" was called "lapping" back in the day.
