Did they break it down past removing the rotor?

He gets to the point of lubricating the rotor spring(s) but I get the impression from the tone of the article that going beyond that point is really a job for a pro. It states: "When it becomes necessary to restore a drum, please get in touch with a good gunsmith. Not Billy-Bob who has a parkerizing tank at the hardware store.
Thankfully, there are some very good gunsmiths. One of the best that I have seen in restoration is Merle F. Bitikofer. He has the talent and the skills to replace the rotor springs and repair almost any damage. He is the only person I know of that has repeatedly repaired West Hurley C drums to functioning drums....."
Tomorrow, I'll post his address and that of 2 other smiths he mentioned in the article who can do this kind of work.
