Hi TMF

I’m in the process of restoring a Victor VI back to factory new condition. Can anyone please recommend someone who is expert in the field of electroplating original Victor VI phonograph parts ?

Thanks to advise
Paul

I would suggest that you take a good original gold plated part, such as a tone arm, and ask the plater to match the finish.

Thanks Jerry. Do you know someone who can do the platting and experience with Victor?

Sorry but it's been years since I had parts gold plated. I would think any reputable plater in your area could match a nice original gold example. Jerry B.
