Complete triple chrome plating setup for sale.

This system comes complete with the capacity to do acid copper, “flash copper” (will plate copper over just about any metal), nickel, “copy chrome”, (a nickel based system that plates close to a chrome colour), and chrome, plating. The tanks have a capacity of 4.5 gallons, so quite large items can be plated. You use the copper plate to “prime” the part, and fill in small imperfections, (a lot like high build primer in a paint system). Then you sand and polish the part to a mirror finish and proceed to nickel plate it. After the nickel plate you buff the part again and then either leave it or go on to the chrome plating. A couple of minutes in the chrome plate will do most parts with decorative chrome. The copper and nickel systems take the metal from anodes which will slowly get eaten up and need to be replaced. In the chrome setup, the chrome comes out of the solution on to the part. The 4.5 gallon chrome tank will plate about 1000 square feet of chrome! I have used only about maybe 30 or 40 square feet. This setup comes with all the tanks, heaters, circulating pumps, and chemicals you need. It’s housed in a counter on wheels, with the tanks set in flush with the counter and storage underneath, and lights and storage over top. There is a fume hood over the chrome tank. There is also some zinc plating solution which will do bright (shiny) zinc plating. Also the chemicals to do zinc chromate (a gold coloured finish) and zinc blackening (a black finish) are included. A tank with acid for stripping chrome plate and one for rust removal are included as well. The plating manual and other documentation go with it too.

I have used this setup to plate hundreds of parts on my E-Type Jag, my 1947 Buick Super, my 1968 Spitfire, and more. We are moving and I have to downsize a bit. The chemicals can’t freeze and the garage I’m moving to isn’t heated all the time like the one I’m leaving.

E-mail me for more info and pictures.

I’m asking $950 for everything, but I’m open to offers or trades.
