Nickel plating removal
We build fishing lures. I am an assembler, and we recently had 500 spinnerbait frames plated in black nickel. The company that did the plating did not read in the specs that the hook from the barb to the point was not to be plated because it would dull the hook. Is there a way to remove this coating chemically (just the tip of the hook) that we can do without going to the expense of repacking and shipping these ourselves?

Possibly, Alan. Try contacting Metalx [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] and see what you think after you've learned a little about their nickel strippers. Good luck.
