    The cone should be 1/8 inch or so above the rim...use a straight edge, the head should compress the foam enough to maintain contact with the head during the rebound from a strike. I would go no more than a 1/4 inch.

    I am not the Chris from Vexpressions although he is just as wonderful as I am
    HERE is their website.

              What kind of foam and adhesive did you use for those, if I may ask.
              I've read about a stiffer/denser foam working best, but have never touched a real roland cone (yeah I know you laughed perv ).

              Now for a short gushing obeisance,
              I'm newly joined here, I've been a lurker for a long time doing research and I plan to make a kit for a TD-20 in the near future. Everyone here has been an insperation, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your knowledge.
              I might be a one trick pony, but it's a helluva trick!

                Just because my posts drip with innuendos, sly misspellings and childish, sophmoric humor don't make me a perv...other things do
                I get foam from HERE...it's called Poron Quick Recovery...I use the adhesive backed stuff...stack three layers leaving the bottom covered till the last...I believe Jman has a link on the sticky (I can only get the home page to link)

                      I am using 1/2" Poron and modified hole saws with a drill press but the pipe-punch works well...although it is slightly smaller... I make mine as close as possible to the preferred manufacturer's...obviously, the size is dependant on how the jig is made.
                      The top needle is long to keep the tip firm when trimming. I don't think sanding is needed but that's personal preference. With just the knife, the cones have VERY slight vertical ribs... (for our pleasure).
                      Enjoy

                      i know from making cones how hard that foam is to cut...it wont work with a hot wire or utility knife at all.

                      ill have to do a similar setup for me next set of cones.

                        Chris and I did a little trading via the mail. He hooked me up with one of his foam cutting jigs. I went out and bought an electric carving knife before I realized the little lady had a couple stored away. The jig works great, the poron cones trigger excellent, and my foam doesn't look like little poopies anymore You da man Chris
                        I could tell you where to stick that piezo! ;)
