Setting gridlines thickness in Plot

The problem:

The default thickness of framelines, gridlines and tickmarks in Plot []
is 0.25pt.  This is too thin for typical figure reductions in journals
& books, and
may disappear from the printed version.

The question:

I want to set  the thickness of frameline, gridlines and ticks to 2,
1.25 and 1 pt, respectively.  These are good values for typical paper
figures.  How do I do

(At the moment I do it with Illustrator postprocessing)

Note: the online help is not much help. There a passing mention on
Gridlines thickness with PlotStyle, but no examples.  What would be
nice is to
reset the defaults once and for all.

Thanks for any help.
