  • plating time

    Does size of the piece matter on the nickel plating time? I know in the manual it says plating time for nickel is 15-60min. How do I know when it is ready?

    Hi:
    The plating time will only dictate how thick you want the plate.
    If your going to buff the plating after nickel or copper plating it, then you would want to go longer.
    I usually only plate nickel for 20 min with a light buffing and then the chrome.
    If you go a long time on nickel it tends to get hazy.
