Woods Nickel Strike Anodes
I read in an old copy of Metal Finishing about someone switching to insoluble anodes in a Wood's Nickel Strike bath. I am looking for someone who has had success with Platinum-Clad Niobium anodes or some other material for reducing the amount of Ni waste.

Forget about Platinum Clad or other Clad Niobium Anodes they are miles too expensive & don't carry enuff current anyways , the most common anode Material used in a Woods Nickel Strike other than Nickel, is CARBON, which is cheap, but has one draw back, using carbon Anodes leads to the production of Chlorine at the anode and it makes operating the bath a real Pain .
