    Have had good luck with the type 3 drums.
    They will bend first, where the thing's will just crack.

    Type 3 are going to be your best shot IMO. Thing drums are good because they are wider and you can use type 1 standard backing plates that are easy to get compared to the type 3's. The thing drums are a little soft from what I have seen but do work you have to make sure you use the right drill bit and be drilled correctly with a small countersink. What has worked for me is a deep socket or a tube that is long enough that is wont bottom when you press the stud all the way in and that has a ID just a tad bigger then the stud so you wont jack the threads when pressing but must be center. The reason I do that is because if it has to much room around it when you press it in it will crack and wont to push through the drum. It should be a tube or socket that has some width so it wont bend and have a large enough surface to support the pressure and spread the load while pressing it in. Hope this helps
