...this may seem like I'm on my way to film a remake of the TV show Breaking Bad, but in reality, it's the chems for my Caswell electroplating kits with some expansion for different metals.

It's really simple to do but full disclosure; Because this stuff really is or can be, dangerous I want to make sure that you need to be careful and use pro-level gear, unless you don't think that you are worth that? And always remember your time/distance to the hospital anytime you do sketchy stuff, not that you shouldn't do it, just be cool...LOL

As Z said....motorcycle parts.



I began using a fish tank heater & pump to plate Zinc.....then it gradually grew. Some metals need a base...
to plate Chrome for instance, you first apply a copper plate, then a nickle plate, THEN the chrome.

I've used the brush-on chrome too as well as the Chemical-Chrome dip. All cool stuff.

Everything is temp/duration/voltage and amperage related so to affect one is to alter the finish or color.
