How can I nickel plate a decorative steel tray without leaving a bare patch where the contact is made, and also where it is suspended in the solution on crocodile clips?Gary Batty

I've never seen anything suspended from crocodile clips for plating and can't understand your contact that is going to leave a bare patch. The bare spot is usually called a "rack mark" and should be not much bigger than a pin head, and located in an inconspicuous area. If this is a onesy-twosy where labor cost is not a worry, just start plating then re-rack and there will be no rack marks.
