1 Greenwich Metal Finishing is located at 300 West Main Street in Stamford, CT.
2 The showroom - Greenwich Metal Finishing services chandelier, sconce, table and floor lamps, and exterior lanterns. They also provide crystal cleaning and replacement.
3 They are re-wiring experts, often with Euro-conversions to US.
4 This steel cabinet, a work in progress, was stripped of paint, polished, and coated with baked on lacquer. Two drawers are being replaced with a drop-leaf door to house a computer.
5 Meanwhile, back in the work shop, the drop-leaf door is being manufactured to match.
6 Painted metal chairs, such as this one, can be sand blasted in their state-of-the-art blasting facility and then beautifully powder coated.
7 Greenwich Metal Finishing offers several choice finishes - silver, brass, pewter, nickel, and gold.
8 All finishes can be in hi-polish, butler, antique, or brushed.
9 You can also purchase lovely wall sconces of their design.
10 And also ceiling fixtures
11 Behind the showroom is a very busy workroom. This metal-crafter is dipping a brass replacement piece in an oxidizing solution to change its color to match.
12 He then applies paste wax, which holds and protects the color.
13 Their lighting restoration division is operated by a team of experts. Creative metal-crafters, polishers, and electrical technicians all work together to provide precise restoration.
14 The electrical technician is converting this old piece of molded cement artwork into a very unusual table lamp.
15 All sorts of canopies, back plates, and mounting plates within easy reach
16 And many sizes and shapes of harps
17 These craftsmen are repairing a newly powder coated iron drop-leaf table.
18 The spray booth is specially designed to ensure a contamination-free environment and offers the highest quality finishes and coatings.
19 This is the big oven where various finishes are baked onto metal pieces.
20 Here is my project in the works. They had to custom make three brass fitter plates for the hand-blown globes and one is being clamped onto a milling machine.
21 The fitter plate is coated with a metal dye to help see the etched on pattern. A milling bit begins to cut.
22 After a first rough-cut pass, a second finishing pass smooths out the edges of the cut.
23 Moving onto the next section
24 When the cutting is complete, the fitter plate is taken to the polishing lathe.
25 This fast-spinning buffer polishes the brass to high-polish finish.
26 The custom fitter plate fits the large opening of the hand-blown globes very nicely.
27 Two more were milled in just the same manner.
28 These are the rest of the polished-out pieces of the light fixture.
29 The pieces were assembled and wired by an electrical technician.
30 In all, six fixtures were assembled by Greenwich Metal Finishing.
31 The two sizes, side by side - I can't wait to see them hanging!
