Some xerographic drums are fabricated from moderately heavy-wall aluminum tubing and in production are manufactured to a predetermined size and coated with photosensitive layers. Due to the cost of the tubing, drums are reclaimed after being returned from the field. The surface layer is stripped and the tube mechanically expanded slightly to permit remachining of the surface in preparation for recoating. When the tubing can no longer be reclaimed it is discarded.
