Plating


Recommended Posts

Not having any luck at finding out if

 

1. it's possible to brass plate steel

 

2. if so, is it affordable

 

2. Is anyone in Central Arizona equipped to do this

 

I have a small one shot project in mind and can't seem to find any info on this.  Maybe I don't know how to use a computer (Imagine that. :o  :P)

You can brass electroplate steel but first you usually have to copper plate it then apply the brass/nickel/gold ect ect ect to the copper plate, you can get a home plating kit but the plating is pretty thin and will wear thru with heavy use, I have had so-so luck getting the copper to stick well to steel it needs to be really clean and there is a chemical you can pre treat the steel with that is supposed to help, I bought my chemicals from caswellplating.com, if it’s just a one shot project it’s probably cheaper to send it out to be done, once you have the chemicals they are good for years and lots of plating, I did my brass grip frames on my uberti 1851 mason conversion in nickel and was very happy with the outcome

Most any chrome plating shop can do this.  Might take a little Q&A, but the chrome shops know where to send you if they don’t.

Yeah.Especially at the casinos. I like Twin Arrows near Flagstaff myself. But I’m just a small time player. ;)

I really need to proof read my posts, eh.

I would call the hotrod shops in PHX, find out who the big chrome shop is, then give them a call.

Twin Arrows is very nice. I work there quite often. The lamb stew is top notch.
