Nickel plating
« on: November 07, 2019, 11:36:36 PM »
I been wanting to try nickel and copper plating. So I decided to practice on the old zoomy pipes I made for the Little Demon engine (I since made headers). The big thing I see with the plating is you need to clean the pieces really good and warm your solution up (warming helps speed it up) Anyway here are some photos of the pipes.

I will do a how to from start to finish on my youtube channel, I'll see if I can get it done in the next couple days. Also plan on doing one on  copper platting. It is very simple and any home shop can set up and do it.
