Posted Mon Feb 17, 2014, 1:40pm Subject: Is it bad of the chrome is worn off the inside of my PF?
It was real dirty when I got it (used), so I may have gotten a bit carried away as I scrubbed it clean with an abrasive scrubber. Now, at the bottom, inside, it seems I have worn away the chrome. Is this bad in any way?
The reason I ask is because I'm having one of my 2 pf's sent away to be drilled "bottomless." I like the feel of my other one better (with the chrome still in good condition); it is this one that I wanted to send to become bottomless.
However, if having the chrome worn down is not a good thing, I can just send that one to be drilled.

It isn't a big deal, it happens all the time. By cleaning to the shining brass, you may get a off taste for a little while until the coffee oils seal the metal but I just wipe mine out with a clean paper towel after use to prevent a big build up, though it should be clean so if it gets a little thick, it gets scrubbed.
