    WANTED: Reliable Vendor for Brass Plating Service

    WANTED: Reliable Vendor for Brass Plating Service

    Thanks Jim and "D" for your guidance and suggestions! I followed your collective advice and put a good deal of elbow grease and Brasso into polishing the scale. Given the results shown in the attached photo, the plot now thickens. For color comparison purposes I photographed the beat scale...

    Swiss "Balloon" Clock. Thoughts on Trademark/Maker

    Thanks Steve! After further searching here on the NAWCC MB I found a reference to a German site that enables one to search for trademarks by entering descriptive text. In this case I figured "snowflake" would be suitable. My wife (fluent in German) provided the German translation...
