Remember When Restorations-

Company Information

I have been a collector of vintage metal for many years & it’s my fascination & love for old & unique pieces that drives my desire to restore & preserve these small relics of recent history. I specialize in many different types of metal- iron, cast iron, steel, aluminum, galvanized, brass, copper, tin, stainless steel & corrugated, stamped, rolled, pressed & pot metal.

Some of the items I receive are “one of a kind”- that is, they’re unique to me because I’ve not encountered them previously. These items may have been mass produced or limited to a small run for a short period of time. Regardless of production quantity, I will typically study each item (on my time) before disassembly begins. This may involve various forms of research in books, catalogs, periodicals, etc. Please allow me this courtesy so that I will be able to more thoroughly understand your piece & restore it to the best of my ability.

Please realize that "Repair" & "Restoration" are two different types of services.   "Repair" is simply that - fix something that is broken, missing or inoperable.  "Restoration" involves a complete renewal of a piece so it closely reassembles its original factory appearance.  Some restorations do require a certain amount of repair, but as a rule, I do not accept items for repair only.   Additionally, I do not have new or used parts for sale & I protect the handful of suppliers I deal with, so please do not pose these types of requests with me.  I do work for both individuals and dealers across the country and will furnish a list of references upon request.
