Lamp & Lighting Restoration
We offer full restoration services of lamps or light fixtures that may require rewiring, re-plating, or polishing. We check all electrical components to ensure that they are in a safe working condition.
Retinning Copper Pots & Pans:
We remove the old tin from the cookware so that the raw copper is prepared to accept new tin. The pot is heated to approximately 450 degrees Fahrenheit which is the melting point of tin. Pure molten tin is then ladled into the pot and swirled around to coat the desired surfaces, and the pot cools naturally. The traditional “hand wiped” method of retinning applies a much thicker layer of tin than “electroplating” methods. You’ll see some wipe marks in the finished product, but it will last much, much longer than electroplating. The outside surfaces are cleaned to a high shine polish finish.
A general quote can be given via email if a picture, measurements, and desired finish is submitted.
All pricing is given “per piece”, at the time an invoice is drafted.
