Listers, Picked up a pair of 1037's for twenty buck a couple of months ago. The cages were badly rusted and upon disassembly I discovered that the spindles had an O-ring to keep out dirt/water instead of the familiar knurled threading. I mentioned this to the list at that time. I had the idea to bead blast the rust off the cages and sure enough I was able to remove all of the rust -- and the chroming as well. Now what to do. The rivets look formidable and how would anyone reattach the cages if one managed to remove them to begin with?
