Typical selective plating techniques used for electronics chasis include liquid masking (using a stop-off mask material )and tape masking (using platers tapes). Your plating chemistry supplier should be able to recommend the proper material based on the chemistries and temperatures you are using. They also may even supply certain liquid masking materials. Good luck, these processes take the steadiness, patience and talent of an artist.Ken Mantle

I don't think your disability disenfranchises you from making money in that field, La. If you are an aggressive 'sales type' person with a history of successful sales, you'll probably do fine at it.
But if you're not, I think it will be a waste of an investment. In operating this Hotline for all these years, I don't think two people have asked me who they can call to get something gold plated with a gold plating kit machine. That doesn't mean there is no potential market, but it probably does mean that the world will not beat a path to your door.
