After some blasting and 80 grit, I am down to this.
Is it necessary to have the drums turned or is this good enough to make them functional?

Not a good idea. Model T drums are too thin already. Just my 2 cents. Bob

Is that a parking brake drum? Your picture is hard to interpret.

This should eliminate all shimmy between 80 and 100 mph. :-)

The more I look at it, I'm sure that's your parking brake drum. No, don't turn it, it's just a parking, or maybe emergency, brake. Should be fine like that.

Jerry, yes, it's a rear brake drum from from a '26, I had to tilt it to get a good pic.

For me leave them as they are

I'm with Dave on this one. Only turn the drum if your trying to eliminate the shimmy between 80 and 100 mph.
