    Hello,
    I would like to find a source for gold-plating some of my clocks which have lost theirs over the years (especially inexpensively.) I know there are people who advertise in the Mart, but does anyone know of other sources that may be off the beaten path? Also, has anyone tried an at-home method of plating, and, if so, with what results?
    Thanks to all.

    I've tried gold electro plating in my shop which is pretty easy but I have been decidedly unimpressed for clocks. It is not bright "gilded-looking" like the process that was used on old clocks. I believe the old process used mercury which, of course, is not used today.

    I'm sure someone else will be much more knowledgeable on this subject...
