I’m curious about what others experience when ordering either Fine
Silver or Sterling sheet from suppliers. Largely, these arrive in
horrific condition with scratches, dinged corners and occasional
gouge; the last had been doctored with a Scotch Brite pad.
Yes, I’ve returned these, but it is a pita, all the same. Somewhere
between their rolling mill and my bench someone is not taking care
of business. Couldn’t a tip be taken from coppers suppliers…? They
use a poly-film laminate and the surface is flawless regardless of
the size of the sheet.
If there is something I’m misunderstanding, or my expectations are
too high, let me know.
