Default Re: Refurbishing a Mullard Valve Tester Metalwork?

I think that old chrome plating can only be removed using concentrated acid, possibly at an elevated temperature. The surface then needs to be made very smooth and then a layer of copper plate needs putting down followed by the chrome plate.

If no one on the forum offers any suggestions of where to go, try looking in magazines for classic cars/bikes restoration.
