Maybe Craig Riker would be a good source for this since he is a Model-A guy.

I have also used Metro Plating for split rings on wheels. Did a great job.

I suggest that you take a picture of the parts you are sending out for work and send a copy to the shop. In case of a mix up during the process it will give a record of what is in your order.

I've used Craig Riker on all of my plating at the shop for at least 20 years. He has always been very fair in his pricing and his quality is top notch. He is usually pretty busy so it might take some time to get your items back but well worth the wait. Just remember the nicer the original piece you send him the nicer the finished product you will receive.
