Thanking youse all for the fine comments  :hammer:

    Yes ,all the Nickel I done here in house ,     after a bit of a quick leaning curve ....getting some fine results now using the "Watts" bath set up.. 


My set up is DIY ....very easy  and safe!!
          only work I farm out is any machining .. and lucky enough to have that done locally  :clap:..



Japan and nickel ,marelli got it right the first time eh ?



Brass or steel , the nickel does a nice job,  this one below ,still awaiting some attention..


cheers jan

Nice job Jan ,
Tell us about the nickle platting?
Is what you did similar to electrolysis in reverse only with nickle rather than steel or carbon??
I may trying  it on some car trim parts.

Charlie ,
       that's it in a nut shell ,
   
electrolysis...nickel anodes in a nickel sulphate bath,

 ..............Jane Plating kits...Australia   ..I'm able to source pre mixed chemicals

https://janekits.com.au/jane-kits-products/

Watts bath is the process used ..


25 litre tub    containing 20 litres of fluid..........a 10'' cage next to tub



for heat I use a stainless steel home brewers heater, this is  mounted thru the side of the tub , controlled with a thermostat ..on right of pic , [60.2 degrees]
anode power to the left...


 


    i   now use 30 litres of fluid and a small pump to agitate the electrolyte...bigger parts  


also use  "pickles" to etch polished brass before plating.....acid salts etc.


.... made a new  blade and cage set , coupla days ago ,then yesterday  topped it of with a bit of nickel.... always a good feeling  :D  that's a 30 min plating time  ..









     some small parts I done at the same time ....



the handbook that came with the kit was my guide ..and google 

     cheers
