I used these about 3 years ago for hubcap rechroming. They said 3 months, then lost them, then found them, before doubling original quote. Got them back after 6 months and within a further 6 months they started to rust 😢

Re-chromed shiny bits

Topic moved & merged - Site Admin.

Finally bit the bullet and sent a couple of bits to the Platers. Very pleased with the results, nickel then chrome plated.

Received back today and fitted to the Mills and Payramid, just got the red paint to drop on now 😀

1935 Payramid payout card needed

Hi folks,

I am looking for someone with an early Payramid that could kindly scan me their payout card please. Mine is damaged and incomplete. The ones on the Resource page are for the later 1960s machines, so have a different boarder and typeface.
