Testimonials. Handy hints. Help

1. How to replace a broken glass.

To remove the broken glass boil the goblet in water for about 10 minutes.This will soften the glue and allow you to pull the brocken glass out of the pewter stem. (wear gloves when doing this)

Mix about a teaspoon of 5 minute araldite with a bamboo skewer and put the mixed glue into the bottom of the pewter stem then put the glass replacement into the glue in the stem.    Wait 1 hour. Job done.

2.How to clean pewter.

Pewter care
Time, and with use, pewter will develop a classic subdued tone, one of pewter's unique properties. However, the brilliant  finish can be maintained with some simple cleaning tips.
Regardless of the finish, pewter should never be exposed to direct flame or heated surfaces, scrubbed with a brush or put in a dishwasher. Also, be aware that if you live by the ocean, atmospheric salts can dull pewter's surface - wipe occasionally with a damp cloth to lessen the effect.
For optimal care, follow these simple tips dependant on the items finish.
Satin Finish
Wash in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
Dry immediately with a soft cloth.
Always wipe satin-finish pieces along its polish lines.
Antique Finish
Wash in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
Dry immediately with a soft cloth.
24K Gold-plated Pewter
Wash in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
Dry immediately with a soft cloth.
Do not use metal polish, as this will dull the gold.
Brilliant Finish

Polish as silver, with a good brand of silver polish and a soft flannel.

Hi Graeme

The Hobbit Chess was released for public viewing (and mine!) on June 2nd at my 50th Birthday. My friends all contributed to its purchase and were delighted to see how fantastic it is.

I especially like  Gandalf on the Eagle – the set is truly a work of art and compliments my Lord Of the Rings chess set. I hope it has been a success for you!

All the best

Brett

My dear Graeme,
Package had arrived safely and I had to wait until my youngest boy could stop by the house (he's 46 - not like he's a little kid, but a kid at heart).
Jim stopped by the house tonight and I gave him the package.  I wish I had had forethought to video his reaction to the package - and the contents. 
The pictures of your work does not do them justice.  Smaug and the Red Dragon were more than amazing.......I don't think there would be an adjective to describe them that would be enough.
I am more than pleased ( and Jim, too)...... I will sing your praises.
Thank you so very much.      Marty McCarter, IL, USA
