I have a Gillette New LC that I'd like to get either yellow gold, or maybe rhodium. Who can recommend a good vendor for doing this?

Depends where you live. Are you in New Zealand?

Razor Emporium - one of TSN's vendors - offer a replating / rewamping service, and the feedback seems to range from excellent to great

Razor Emporium did a great job on my New Improved (had it redone in Rhodium).

I've been very happy with what Chris Evatt of RazorPlate does.  I have replates from Razor Emporium and also from Chris and while the Razor Emporium job is nice the ones from Chris are superb.

I've had replates done by RazorPlate and Razor Emporium. If I ever need another replate done I'd first contact Chris at RazorPlate. He does top notch work, had quicker turnaround and is a real gentleman. Not a knock on Razor Emporium's work, but I felt more comfortable communicating with Chris.

USA - Arizona. Which apparently is where RazorEmporium (the forum sponsor Wegian linked to) is from.

Are they able to replate adjustable razors? I have a Fatboy I would like to get replated.

Yes, both do. If yours needs fixing and a good clean, Chris from RazorPlate partners with another Chris (aka Captain Murphy) who does a great job cleaning (disassemble and everything) and fixing vintage Gillettes. Also, he is particularly fond of Fatboys.

I'v used Razor Emporium a few times and they've done excellent work on both two of my father's razors and one of gramps. But for my gold WWII era Aristocrat I'm considering RazorPlate. The Emporium's prices have gone up and I hear nothing but excellent reviews about, Chris is it? Anyways, Razorplate.
