Removing Name Badge.
Geoff Wooff posted a topic in Instrument Construction & RepairAnyone have experiences of removing the Wheatstone "shield" badges from metal ends ? This seems like the right thing to do before sending the ends off to be replated. That way these badges would not get defaced when the Polisher gets heavy handed. Perhaps it is possible to get the ends plated but not polished, then one could do a more carefull polishing job at home? Seeing an original Nickel plated end with its Brass name plate is so much more Classy ! Hmm some badges do appear to be Nickel plated or made from a white metal. PS: of course, replacing the badges might be more difficult than removong them
