Plating Service for An AGM Fount

#1

Post by VWDiesel »

I have a Sunflame equivalent to the AGM 3016. Unfortunately the Sunflame fount was a stress crack disaster . Everything else on the lantern is in great shape including the Sunflame logo on the globe .

I have an extra steel AGM 3016 fount I would like to get plated to get the lantern back up and running . I’ve never taken anything to a plating service . Am I looking for electrolytic bright nickel plating ? How much should I expect to pay for this service ? What are the key talking points to specify to the plating service ?

Thank you in advance for your replies .

I can’t help but will be watching this one. I have one or two that I could do the same.

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.

Contact New England Chrome Plating in East Hartford CT. The ICCC uses them for plating the convention host lantern. They also used them for re plating 242's for a custom lantern project for members a few years ago. They do top notch work. They have a web site, or PM me for the phone number.

I used New England Chrome Plating on my 319 project. They replated the fount for me after I had the stress cracks repaired. All nickel from the fount up is original.
