    before you plate try to round the edge a little bit so that the plating stays on corners. When it's sharp the plating will not stay on the intersection.

    Burning through

    I'm having trouble with polishing nickel or copper .I tend to burn through I'm using a commercial buffer with white compound with a spiral sewn wheel.For the most part I usually buff to a high shine but around the edges and around tight areas I burn through.I plate copper for about 30 minutes and nickel for 20.should I plate those items longer to get a thicker base? or am I buffing wrong?
