Re: Resurfacing my winch drums

Lawrie, find a local machine shop. They can resurface the drums with media blasting, or wires in an air chisel, or other ways. If the shop looks at it and goes "huh?" find another shop. Resurfacing metals to get better traction should be a simple job for any competent shop. Then the only question is whether you want the drums plated or coated, or not.
