Phew, I never would have thought of that! Does anybody know if there is a more definitive description of the chrome used for this purpose?
Before you go ahead with getting them re-chromed, contact Hutton-Arco, and get a price
for replacement drums. I replaced a 40ST drum and it was cheaper than I expected. Doesn't cost anything to find out.
