Anyone know the costs that LN charges for replating?

I have scoring on 2 of my cylinders. They are 98mm.

Also, anyone know the going rate these days for replating by vendor?

+1 for EBS. You could get already re-plated cylinders on an exchange basis from them. I believe they charge about $1300 for new cylinders and would credit you about $500 for yours.

I heard they're about $120 each? Asked about LN since I've never heard their prices.

US Chrome it is

EBS doesn't actually do these in house - they send them to Millennium. There are TWO nikasil platers in the country, US Chrome and Millennium Technolgies.

I have never tried Millennium directly (but I have used their finish product). They are good. So is US Chrome, which I have done dozens of times.

Just got a set back from US Chrome, price was $1025 for 6, but that also included boring to size.
