Removing Chrome from Brass




I have an old scale that I would like to remove the peeling chrome from the brass underneath. What is the most efficient way for me to strip the chrome? I have tried sandblasting a small spot, but it is a pain to buff it shiny... Thanks, Rick Quarles

aWell you need to get some ammonia [on eBay or Amazon affil links] and a car battery, get a metal rod and get some paper towel and rap it around then end of the rod ussing elastics. Now hook the positive up to the rod and negative to the workpiece. Dip the towel in ammonia and start rubbing chrome away, wear a paper mask and good rubber rubber gloves [on eBay or Amazon affil links] and use common sense. Good Luck Barrett
