Does anyone know of an inexpensive source to send a bucket of bolts for replating? I'd really like to use some of my IH, JD, MF, etc stamped bolts in restores with the bright look of new bolts and less worry of chipping off paint in reassembly.

I reuse what is serviceable but replace most with like type Grade 5 hardware and grade 8 if I feel I need a little more clamping force.
