The rods have been sandblasted, thanks to the use of a benchtop blaster from Tim M. I then used an abraisive finishing wheel (like a grity sponge) on my Dremel to polish the rods and all the motion structure. They were then cleaned and bolted together, with Loctite on all the nuts. They are installed for what I hope is a long time.
