    All:

    Here’s a simple way to nickle plate small parts – such as in watches. If you ever need to re-finish a watch plate, this should be simple enough.

    Here’s how to make the solution:

    Thanks Tom, interesting video and yes, it might come in handy one day.. I’ve been thinking about trying gold plating to restore some nice old cases that are completely ratched..

    Chris:

    You probably need to strip off the old gold first. You can reclaim it as well. My dad had a plating shop when I was a kid and he did industrial chrome for fire trucks, antique cars and the like. He did gold, silver, bronze, copper, nickle, and chrome plating. Unfortunately, he used to dump his chemicals in our backyard – we had well water too. He almost died a few times from heavy metal poisining. I wonder what’s in store for me? Hmmm… Anyway, we used to play with lead and mercury like tinker toys. Dang… just think of what my IQ would have been if not for sucking on lead plates as a kid. ;)
