LS-32 Refurbished Shafts


#1

I inherited a couple of very well used LS-32’s recently and they were looking pretty rough. Especially the chrome plated shafts.

Took em in to work today, gave em a bead blast, thorough polishing and then a lengthy bath in our black oxide tanks.

Took a few tries to get the shafts conditioned properly to take a black oxide finish without looking splotchy, but a bit of tweaking and I think they turned out very nice.

Wow, nice work, do that treatment make them oxid proof now??

I’ve never seen any metal that’s received black oxide form any rust. So I’m crossing my fingers.
