I'm hoping someone can help me with some information.
I just picked up one of these in great condition and really want to give it a good cleaning before I use it.
The main body and auger are cast aluminum, so I know how to clean them. However, I'm embarrassed to say, I can't tell what the plates and blade are made of. I think they're aluminum, but not sure. Whatever they are, they have heavy oxidation. Before I go crazy in trying to get them all shiny again, can someone please educate me on the material and subsequent care of the plates and blade?
What I picked up looks like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/260983375664?... including the dark plates and blade.
