|Thread: Anyone done any Nickel or Chrome plating of mild steel parts at home?|
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.
