    Slver Plating

    I have one also: I purchased a Copy Chrome PlugNplate Kit and a bottle of Silver Solution. May I use the wand from the Chrome kit for silver plating or do I need a silver anode? What is the wand made of?

      Mojo, A silver anode will preserve your silver solution. You could use an old silver fork or piece of sterling. Gus

        Silver Plating

        Yes you need to de-chrome the silver first.

        Are you talking brush plating or tank plating? Tank plating requires 1.5-3 volts and 0.007 to 0.003 amps per square inch. 75 degress F works best.

          You can use the Copy Chrome Plug N Plate Wand to plate your silver. The wand is stainless steel.
