Salt spray? There may be salt in the air as we are by the sea. But you would have thought it would take more than a month to attack them. I have plenty of galvanised bits in the workshop that have been here years and as new.

edit... Just checked some other galvanised brackets that are in the container, also fine.

Not galvanised that's why just very poorly electro plated. Don't take your cabs anywhere near a seaside town.

HI, could you strip them into separate parts leaving the bearings alone and find someone near you with a small blast cabinet that does powder coating or stuff like that and just paint em with heavy zinc primer?
I live in a seaside town too, so know yer problems.

That is a PITA, maybe worth giving them a bell?

They will all have to go back to blue aran. They are not fit for purpose imo, and no warnings is supplied with them and no mention in regards to only being stored at certain humidity's in the product description. I'm sure id have seen this before if this were the case for all electro plated parts on say tools for instance.
