Re: Chrome plating

BTW, Mamod is the brand name of an old steam-powered toy so it's not oversize.. Always wanted one but they were expensive back then. Remember my neighbour had one, fascinating to watch.. It is indeed as HHTel says, a “model” vintage car, something like an open top Rolls Royce. I had it as a Birthda...

Re: Chrome plating

What a great model, wish I had one of those when I was a kid, it was probably a modern car when I was a kid.

Sorry for getting your name wrong previously Dannie Boy.

Wanted to put a pic on here of one of my bar stools but can't see how to do it.

Re: Chrome plating

Hi again VincentD, one of my main concerns about having the job done elsewhere is if the preparation would be done properly, having lived here for 12 years and dealt with dozens of so called "PROFESSIONALS" I have absolutely no confidence in getting a quality job done. I owned and ran a Body Repair ...

Re: Chrome plating

Hi Danny Boy, the equipment is not expensive, I already have a suitable power supply and enough materials in my workshop to make this plant, only have to buy a few tanks and the plating materials and chemicals. Also I want to make sure they are done properly and will last for many years to come. Th...

Re: Chrome plating

Hi Nereus, I got a quote to have these stools re-chromed at a place in Bangkok, they wanted 4,500 Baht each, that’s 135,000 Baht for the 30, did they see a ferang coming? The stools cost 3,500 Baht each to buy. Even if I buy new stools they will probably also need re-chroming in a years time. I'm 72...

Re: Chrome plating

Thanks for your comments VincentD, I’m aware of what is involved in doing chrome plating and all the chemicals necessary to do it. When I’m finished with the chemicals they will be disposed of responsibly. I wish to re-chrome 30 bar stools that are only 1 year old and already showing signs of rust, ...

Chrome plating

Any of you guys out there clued up on nickel and chrome plating? I want to set up a small chroming plant and it would be good to have some help and advice from somebody who knows what they are doing instead of having to teach myself from scratch. Anybody know and have a bit of spare time? Cheers.
