Hi everyone
I am not exactly a newbie when it comes to DE's,and shaving with them of course!...LOL!,But I am new to TSN,well,I have been a little bit of a lurker for a while,but I thought I would sign up proper like,and make my presence known!.
I have been into collecting DE's for years now.I have a,whilst not huge,but fairly respectable collection,(of about at least 30 vintage DE's,and 6-7 modern DE's).

My main passion is restoring these old classics to there once former glory!,I usually buy the ones that no one else wants,bent teeth,cracked handles,stuck TTO's,uneven silo doors,you name it,I buy it!, and then,restore them!,been doing that for nearly 6 years!.

The one thing I have always wanted to do is re-plate these old guys to a standard that I deem acceptable,and to me,that means,a total strip down,then all the old plating removed,so the razor is down to the bare brass,then a full re-plate...

So I have spent the last 2 years,slowly buying all the gear,and learning as much as I can about electro-plating,from industrial set ups,to home 'beaker' set-ups,and setting myself up to do it.I am now about a week away! (finally).I will open a thread,with pics, on my work shop,so you can see I am not just 'talking the talk'..LOL!.

BTW,I do this as a HOBBY,so any questions,go ahead and ask!.
Enjoy the thread to come guys!,and thanks for having me!.

DT
