More magic from Chris Evatt at razorplate.  Looks like he is catching up on his backlog.

I sent him a couple beaters I picked up for replating in bright nickel, an Eclipse red ring and Cooper Monobilt.  The Cooper I picked up years ago and didn't know much about, let it sit in a pile.  I didn't even figure out how to open the top cap until recently.

He did a great job!  Pics do the talking

Thank you fellas!

They are both originally chrome finished razors, but Chris does not offer this as it's much more involved (and potentially dangerous?)
I opted for bright nickel over rhodium for both razors due to cost considerations, and think they came out well.  It may be the lighting but in some pics the plating almost looks white like rhodium.

I'm really impressed with the monobilt in particular because that razor was really nasty before restoration.

The Monobilt was impressive as it appears to have small parts/latches which all seems to have come out which has me amazed he was able to clean it up as well as he did.. but the Eclipse was pretty narly itself as there are some major rust/corrosion spots on there. 

I went to Chris about beginning of last year, and he did wonderful work on my Big Fellow Old type. Its a great feeling to see something of your own restored.

Would have posted sooner, active weekend with the kids.. here's the before and after of mine. Turned out it had a lot of flea bites which I could not really tell, but its a great shaver and enjoy it when its turn comes up. These were done by Chris about 2Q 2014.
