re-tinned metal cream separator parts?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
Does anyone know where to get metal parts retinned? I want to get several parts on my cream separator redone. Thanks, Brett

Can't tell you where to for retinning but want to warn you about making sure that you get tin, NOT galvanizing. Believe it or not, some shops which do plating do not know the difference! Good luck, John and Pat

Brett, John and Pat are right. If you don't have someone on this board answer you with a specific person/business, try local jewelry stores or if you can get directly to a restorer, ask them. Copper cookware is tinned on the inside and there are people somewhere who do it. At least there used to be. Due to all the laws and the cost of insurance, many have had to shut down. It can be difficult even finding someone who will plate the more common stuff. Separators are in demand for lawn ornaments. Makes it tough to buy a junker for parts. Maybe if you start nosing around in people's flower beds, you'll find someone who has the parts you need in usable condition. Stranger things have happened. Gerbil

There is an active cream seperator club out there somewhere- I'm not a collector and I don't know more about the group- but I would think that a search on the internet might find them, and they might be a source of info.

You can find the answer to just about any question by typing the question into "Ask Jeeves".Ask JeevesI asked Jeeves "Who can re-tin milk separator parts?" and he came up with Oregon Re-tinners . They certainly know what it's all about, although of course I don't know anything of them by personal experience.

I have an old KithenAid mixer and called KithenAid for a replacement bowl because mine was rusted. They didn't carry that model bowl anymore and told me about the tinners linked in the site above. I found them a little pricey also at $65.00 to re-tin the inside of a bowl.....can rust kill you? :-)

I am a collector of Cream Separators and am a member of the Boad of Directors of the Cream Separator and Dairy Collectors Association.
We have a Newsletter which comes out bi-monthly. There are classified ads which offer separators and parts for sale and trade. If there is a question regarding cream separators, we can answer it.
I also have a large collection of Cream Separator manuals which could be copied for the needy. Please let me know if our group can help.
