Resources for restoration / repair?

Recommended Posts

Firstly, Merry Christmas all... 🎄

Secondly, as I occasionally encounter damaged Iron Crosses - and in some cases either the Cross is too nice to pass up despite the damage (or priced so low it’s impossible to ignore), I was wondering if there is someone out there who specializes in proper restoration of these awards?

Some jewelers who do jewelry repair as part of their business may be able to help with some items.  Those that have the equipment to do laser soldering can work on a larger variety of items (such as enameled pieces) as the process does not heat up the surrounding metal as much as conventional methods.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
