  • Best DIY Plating kit ?

    I've used a friend's 'Janes' Plating kit to do zinc plating for small fittings and nuts & bolts.
    Found it quite good, but I was wondering about other people's experiences with different kits. (I doubt that Plating kits would be shipped internationally (I'm in Australia) because of the dangerous chemicals involved.
    But all input could be useful info for members in different countries.

    Caswell has a pretty good reputation in the USA, I've not used it yet, but Mike Waller ( Britannia Motorcycles ) has a YouTube video that shows and explains VERY clearly the process....and results .

    Caswell does a very inexpensive $ 49 US .... brush plating kit, apparently works very well on smallish items .... e.g. small spindles, wheel nuts etc. .... I may purchase and do some of my fasteners .... will report on this forum as to results .
