Can I plate new nickel over the old nickel (once it is prepped)? Is there a way to polish the old nickel...

  • Question regarding composition of buffing compounds.

    I just bought a buffing compound kit, and I was checking the SDS documents to see what the composition of the bars was. I was under the impression that the green bar (stainless), was green due to the color or chromium oxide, however, the SDS sheet does not show chromium oxide as a component of that...

    Torpedo heater conversion

    I am looking to build an oven that uses a torpedo style heater. I have no knowledge whatsoever of electronics and would trust a monkey with a gun before I trust myself to wire a pid. Would it be possible to run the torpedo heater without a pid and if it is possible would it be smart?
