Yes. In another lifetime. I wonder if those were Camco jigs? When Camco moved to Chicago, I vaguely remember in the 60's seeing their shop in operation/production

My friend Garry Williams who owns the San Francisco Drum Company says he thinks they're old Rogers molds.

UPDATE (from bottom of ad)

After hearing from some real experts, I do not believe these particular molds were actually used by the Rogers Drum Company at their Ohio plant. Many readers told me they were and it made sense to me based only on the geographical location. I do believe, however, that they were owned by and sold off at auction by Rogers. These could very well be molds that Rogers just acquired in buying out a competitor? In any case, I am not representing these as being used by anyone in particular. These are just molds/tools, used to make drum shells - not rare collectors items. Thanks! Keep the info coming.
