  1. Sherm's doesn't do their own. They send their stuff out. Know this for a fact. 👍

  6. Hello Everyone. I've actually used Sherm's. They do a good job on plating.
  7. Looks like it's a little warped as well.. No worries though, it can easily be repaired back to its original condition.
  8. Hey Pete. In my professional opinion and experience, you're far better off doing absolutely nothing rather than attempting to repair with jbweld. You see, pot metal is literally a meyal sprung that if left unplated or for that matter unpainted it will absorb any wet substance that it comes in contact with it including jbweld. That said, if or when you decide to go with a permanent solution, you will be faced with a considerably higher repair cost due to metal contamination which must be removed/replaced. In a nutshell, leave it alone until you decide to do it right.
  9. Yes Pete. Text or email me, or pot a photo or two so we can see what you end up with when they arrive. I'm sure I can help you clean 'em up. 😊👍 Thanks brother!
  10. Muggyweld is a very low temperature solder and is typically used for rejoining broken pot metal parts - and works great for some ornamental parts. Not so much for mechanical parts or under plating. One of the most common problems with pot metal is that (without a trained eye) it's hard to spot "dead metal"... You see, dead pot Metal on the surface looks fine, but is a slightly darker shade of gray however if it's cleaned or lightly sanded it seems to disappear, but has only ducked out of sight. A person can easily and unknowingly solder good pot metal to dead metal and attempt to relate it only to have blow up in their face - not literally, but you know what I mean. And many times, this will frustrate most chrome shops and chances are your bill will go through the roof for a "proper" repair. Apologies for the tangant.. Anyhow, if welding to dead pot metal is attempted you will know right away! Dead pot Metal doesn't like heat and seriously misbehaves with temperatures over 400+ degrees and it'll punsh you for attempting so. However welding pot metal is for superior to soldering and it allows the absolute manipulation of it as well.👍
  11. Hey Walt. The pot Metal problem has been a century old problem that has caused so many darned problems for people and has siest many restorations that otherwise would have been completed much earlier. But this I can say with all sincerity that damaged, rotted and or broken "non-repairable" pot metal parts is 100% a problem of the past. 👍😊
  12. Thanks Chuck. I really appreciate ya posting about your repair. And again, I very much appreciate your support. Thanks again. 😊
