Anyone still doing this? The last two I emailed questions to was returned undeliverable?
Rick Britten is the best, just google Britten Brass Works. Be prepared to spend the bucks, but nothing compares to his work, it's jewelry quality...just gorgeous.....
I second Rick Britten. Everything David has said about him is true.
Here is Rick's email: BrassGuy1905@aol.com
Be prepared to wait about 12 months for the work. He has 3 of my 1910 lamps to restore right now. He did provide me with burners for my new E&J lamps which no one else could do...
He is the best!
I also recommend Rick Britten. He did the Gray & Davis bullet lights for my '06 Buick. Took about (2) years and was expensive (almost 9K for headlights and sidelights),but they're perfect. Brass restoration is expensive, but when you consider you can't find some of this stuff, what's the alternative?
Your broken door could be repaired by brazing with Harris safety silv 45 silver solder. This is a 45 percent silver brazing material that melts at 1100F or so and will give a good color match.
Thanks Guy's and especially Ted's suggestion about silver solder. I didn't know that was an option. That would lower the repair cost.
