Thread: Anyone done any Nickel or Chrome plating of mild steel parts at home?
25/03/2021 05:02:22

the home kits for nickel work very well if the instructions are followed exactly. i found it very time consuming as the parts to be plated have to be highly polished and free of any scratches, you can also control the thickness of the nickel by the time it is left in the tank.

Thread: Motorcycle General Discussion

this is an piece from an old motorcycle book explaining how to climb a frightful hill. a little commonsense and observation will enable many a frightful hill to be climbed by an engine in bad health. such abnormal hills generally owe there difficulty to one or two steep short pitches. when the engine begins to labour, jump off and run alongside for a few yards till the engine picks up freely again. keep a keen lookout from the tail of you eye for any by-roads coming down on to the hill at an angle, up which you may proceed to get a fresh start in emergencies. at worst if you have to push, pile all superfluous clothing on carrier before commencing to shove. it aso tells you how to remove the drive belt to aid pushing, obviously no clutch. the good old days?
