  • DIY Chrome Plate

    I just wondering has anyone Done chrome at home?

    I did nickle and silver plate in school but it was on a small scale.

    I think I could do small Items with a little work.

    Has anyone done this?

    Thanks Kevin

    There's a company that sells home chrome kits and supplies. Caswell I think the name is.
    I've never done it or heard from anyone who has. If you try it, let us know what the results are

          The worse problem might be disposing of some of the nasty stuff,real toxic.I was giving the grand guided tour of the chrome shop I use last time I picked some chrome up.
          Personally,Id just as soon someone else did this kinda work,don't think Id even want to work there,but there must be some satisfaction in restoring a nice piece.
          Perhaps you could get a tour of one near you to help you decide if you really want to start this.
          I was told a bucket of nickle alone is 10k,and they go through lots of it.
