repairsPot metal restoration is necessary when deterioration is beyond removal by conventional sanding and buffing, without risk to the substrate or its detail. In these cases the surface needs to be restored. Pot metal restoration is accomplished by applying a substantial soft copper plating followed by a re-sanding. If required during the pot metal restoration process, remaining pitting, scratches, holes, or low areas are then silver soldered. The solder is then "cut down" to be level with the copper surface, and then the item is re-copper plated, enabling the entire surface, including the area previously soldered, to be polished. Depending upon inspection, the part will either have the copper plate reapplied and reworked, or sent for final triple plate.
