  • sunburst/radial brushed pattern on brass

    Help;

    I am a accutron watch collector, rebuilder. I have a clock face (6" diameter) that the nickel plating has worn off, and it has a sunburst, from the center, brushed pattern that has some small, but noticeable scratches.

    Before I replate this, I want to remove the scratches, and yet keep the radial brushed pattern.

    Anybody have any experience doing this sort of work, please share that experience?

    OK, No experience, I would also like to read about any ideas, or thought's you? all might have.......

    Thank_You_In_Advance

    Any way you can post a picture. There are a few ways to get the pattern I think your looking for.

      Re: Request for image:
      Here is a link to what it looked like before the damage, although the radial pattern does not show up very well:

        Two pics of clack fase as-is.

        The yellow/green is masking to keep new nickel out of machining that was done AFTER the originial plating.

        It is not easy to show pattern in pics, but you can see that the old plating is also coming off in the radial pattern.

          That's not the pattern I was picturing. I'll have to talk to a couple of friends and see what I can find out. I've always been amazed at what could be done with what they had to work with years ago. Sorry I didn't have an answer right off.
