In search of good hardware platers

Post by A Wright Homeowner »

Hi - we find ourselves in search of a good hardware plater in the midwest. We've used AlBar of Wilmette in the past, with excellent results, but their latest quote is off the planet! Any quality alternatives out there?

Should be plenty of good platers in the Chicago area but Theiss in St. Louis is familiar with historic hardware. I've used them.

hardware platers

Post by D. Shawn Beckwith »

I was very pleased with the nickle plating job that was performed by Bathroom Machineries in CA for the bathroom window hardware and bathroom towel bars and fixtures for the Westcott House. Also the company that made the light fixtures for the house had connections for plating items, may be not in house but really, really good people to work with, ARTEMUS LIGHTING in Cleveland, Ohio. Both firms performed above my expectations.

Thank you Mike and D. Shawn Beckwith, for responding. It's nice to have a place where we can share resources on restoration issues. I'm off to get quotes on the 26th. In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
