gosh, this thread just brought back vivid memories of the 'tinning' guys who used to go from door to door offering this service back in Mumbai..it was something taken so much for granted!

Retinning? East Coast Tinning http://www.eastcoasttinning.com Send them to Rhode Island - you'll have them back in 2 weeks.

And to answer the question directly, if I were to have my French copper re-tinned, I'd send it to the guy Merrill recommends: http://www.brooklyncoppercookware.com/ As you'll see from the thread linked above, I corresponded with the owner. He was very helpful and obviously quite knowledgeable. And reasonable. ;o)

A related question was one of the first I asked on the old foodpickle, while it was still in beta.

Here is a thread with a lot of useful information. http://www.food52.com/foodpickle/199-how-do-you-know-when-it-s-time-to-have-a-french-copper-gratin-pan-re-tinned ;o)
