    I could do with my 24AW re-plating. Last time i had it done it waas £12 inc P&P (2002). Unfortunately the gent who did it has since passed away I believe (Alaric Knight), so I could do with suggestions where to send it now.

    Contact Dan Smith at Brass Fix he has done some great re-plating for me and others I know.
    I can't see a current price on his site but he was not expensive.

    Incidentally - I also had some great re-plating done by Alaric Knight but that was many, many years ago....

    Bryce Ferguson at Brass and Woodwind in Edinburgh replated the rim of my trusty Bach 1-1/4G last year - and did a good job for much less than the amount quoted above (in fact, I think he threw it in for free as we were having a bigger job done with it?). He does bigger plating jobs too, of course - but it's only the rim that really matters, isn't it?

    Ive had several done over the years, great service although he does tend to specialise in gold plating.
