    Hi Yerigh,
    Some years ago I purchased an electroplating kit. It works well, but you need to be very meticulous and methodic following all the steps to get a good result.
    Yes, there is some cyanide among the chemical products you use in the process. But if you take a minimum safety care – and I believe that anyone that has ability to repair clocks and watches is not a disastrous person – the process is safe and you’ll not get poisoned.
    If you very occasionally will plate some part, maybe it worth send it to a professional service, as Bob do. But if you intend doing this very frequently maybe better you purchase a good plating kit and get the practice to use it. Tip: kits that work with an immersion tank will make much better plating than those that work with little pads like a pen.
