well, it's not really THEM, as much as the credit card processing firm they use for the transactions (they're almost never in house, but big companies that do this for thousands of retailers and sites)

I'm trying the Cola method right now to remove rust.
Most of the supplies I purchased at the Dollar General and can of paint at Wal-mart for $5 bucks.

A lot of shit came out of the mags with just boiling hot water. (From the inside of the mags.) Cleaning up nicely too.

One mag is nearly in the white. Looks kinda cool.

"That's cause bluing is a form of rust!" Yeah yeah

I'll never understand the people worried about CC fraud. I have about four credit cards, one of which I reserve for online purchases.

I check my account almost daily so if my number was compromised I'd have the problem fixed in minutes

Some people have a life and don't have the time or ambition to watch their CC like a hawk.

The only time I've ever had fraudulent activity, Chase both emailed me and sent me a text message asking if I made the purchases.

And if you don't have five minutes to check your credit card, should you really be using it?

I got several bank accounts both personal and business plus all my business accounting to deal with. Like I said I have a life and don't have the time to watch a credit card account every day, especially since I don't use it much. If a vendor is having known CC fraud issues I just don't use them. Every single time I called Chase I ended with some Hindu half way around the world that can barely speak english and is even worse at understanding english. Don't see the reason to subject myself to that shit show if I don't have to.

Most major credit card companies, banks and hell even Credit Unions now have a feature to setup alerts so charges that post to your account can be emailed or texted to you over a certain amount. You don't have to watch your account like a hawk when these are free features you can opt into online usually.

I am not hating on people who buy these things. I am sure they are more knowledgeable than me and can tinker with mags. I just can't. I have learned the wrong way that you are better of just buying a little better quality... you save money in the long term...

These mags should be sold for $1 or $2 (MAX) a piece.
Agreed. The only value I see in these is if you are seeking beat up junk on purpose and plan to power wash them off and run them as they are, dysfunction and all.
