Thread: Nickel

Ian - the odd tarnishing on the surface of the bar might well have got there from it sitting in a bath of electrolyte. "Rolled Nickel" suggests to me that this is pure nickel and not a nickel alloy. So all in all I reckon you could well be correct with your "plating electrode" suggestion. Thanks for your nickel ode Ian smiley>>

I would like to subscribe to the print editions of Model Engineer and Model Engineers workshop. Does anyone know:

1. Is there a discount for subscribing to both?

2. Do subscribers to the printed editions get access to the digitally archived copies?

Ady - The colour of the bar is odd. It is overall very light matt grey with a hint of green/blue and almost opalescent. Whoever had it before me had hacksawed of a small piece leaving a finish no different to stainless or mild steel. - Rik

My unusual 50p car boot find today is a bar of strange looking metal 8" x 1" x .5" thick. It was only when I looked at one end I could see it had been stamped "ROLLED NICKEL".

I have never come across this stuff before so the question is........what do model engineers do with rolled nickel?
