These have metallic tops Bill - if you look closely you'll see some shiny bits - mine came with shiny tops

Upon closer inspection, these are pads only.  I am looking for the pads with new metallic contacts attached, too.  The metallic pads also decay and need to be replaced.  I have been able to re-use some but they're never 100% good.  The surface gets coated with something that causes them to loose the desired properties and cleaning does not always help.  I have a punch to create my own pads, and I *could* make metallic pads from a space blanket or similar but I was hoping to find pre-made-ready-to-use replacement pads instead.  I could use 4 sets.
