  • the learning curve?

    What a big surprise i had when i got my 30 gal triple dip system. for those of you, who like me, think you can just pick it up and run with it. Let me tell you its no picnic. I have stripped so many parts i think i burnt up a couple anodes, not really but have learned how to replace heater fuses. the prep is what its all about. who would have thunk it. but garbage in is garbage out. just a word of warning. be prepared its fun but u will lose a lota hair from pulling it out. anyways thats my take on it. And just for the a good laugh from you experts.I not only bought the 30 gal system with a 25 and 250 amp rec. i bought a building and set up shop to chrome plate .lol .thought i was screwed for a while there. clydes

    big Leap

    I'm also new at this plating business but it is a lot of fun. I would be interested in hearing how some of your larger projects go, such as a grill from an old car?

            I too bought a 30 gal. set-up as well as a 4.5 gal. set-up with hopes and dreams of being a sucessful plater. I've never been this frustrated.

              My best suggestion is be like the turtle and not the hare,and youll get there,and by the way crown royal is cheaper by the half gallon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Beau alsoalways use the hottest water in town for cleaning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
