    I completely agree Frank.

    Thanks for the ideas gents. I ended using a jeweler's torch (an itty bitty oxy-propane job) and some easy silver solder. Worked like a champ.

    I had a similar job a few years ago and used the lowest low-temp silver solder I could find. I used one of those little micro-butane-torches (think a cigarette lighter on steroids). The torch has a really small flame, which meant I could tightly control where the heat was. If I get another one, I'd use it as an excuse to buy a resistance soldering setup (Rule 1: Never pass up an excuse to get a new tool :-)

    If you are not going to rechrome it then epoxy is the way to go.

    Ok gents, reaching out for some suggestions and advise. Got a job to do either today or tomorrow for my aunt. She's a sweet old gal and in love with this candle stick that she believes is sterling silver, but it's clearly not. I think it's chromed brass. Anyway, figured someone has had one of these types of jobs slide into the shop at some time. I told her that no matter what I do it's gonna mess up the finish in that area. So, any advise? TIG braze, solder, weld? The last picture is of a spot I took the sander too.
