The hard chromed piston rod stock is just as you have known it to be, industrial hard chrome plating over steel and it is ground to perfection. Base material is C-1045-1050. Chrome plating is .0005" thick. You purchase your finished diameter from their on line catalog. Cutting through the hard chrome was clean and easy with my carbide tool bit. You cut it to your needed overall length and finish the ends to your needs. Material for my industrial hard chromed water pump pistons was purchased from: [www.alloysandcomponents.com
] They were nice people to work with, and they gave fast delivery too.
