Yeah, these are the caged Lightning’s. Seem to be anno for sure. Unfortunately the cages are riveted on, not screwed. I’ll try carefully dipping only the cages in the strip bath one edge at a time to avoid the etching.

Draino Professional Crystals - discontinued!!!!

What shall we do?  Those crystals are now like $50 online and I am actually thinking about buying some because I don't know what else will work that good.


I'm taking a road trip this week.  Anything you buy from me during the week would likely ship Saturday 8/15/20.  I will be able to communicate periodically though.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Good deal...thanks deme and Agent.  I'm back in business!

Drano kitchen granules for the win, got it on amazon for around $10. Used it today, works like a dream!
