Electroplating System Tin Zinc
Product Review (submitted on July 6, 2010):
I bought this kit to save some time/$$$ on those dozens (if not hundreds) of small zinc-plated fasteners and small parts on my five restorations. I'd have to rate the system as excellent, with the only detraction being that only one anode is supplied in the kit, and with a boxload of small parts, it disappears quickly. the finish once buffed is superb, and I found that on fasteners and smaller components that a fine brass wire brush brings out a nice shine. I assume a short run in a tumbler w/ glass bead media might have the same affect, but I have not tried that. My pre-plate prep included bathing the parts in a muriatic acid solution, rinse and dry media blast. This gave for superior final results. Sure beats an expensive trip to the platers..!
