    I have tried a couple of these - not sure if it's the same one - and they work within limitations.
    Small areas of plate loss can be tidied quite well and if the polish is used regularly it will improve.
    Worth a go if you have the need. I wouldn't suggest trying to replate a whole instrument with it !!!

    This product will colour the surface with Silver, but has no durability whatsoever.
    It will require re-coating on a regular basis.
    I am not sure of the make up of this solution, but the genuine Silver Plating Solution is Cyanide based!!

    Thanks for that advise, maybe I'll hold off for now.
