Stripping Nickel Chrome Plating

(2000)

I'm Robert Peterson a hobbyist looking to strip nickel chrome plating from a set of investment cast-heat treated 8620 carbon steel golf clubs. I am having them refurbished. Any recommendations on acids or chemicals I can use to strip this coating? Preparation ideas?

Who is doing the refurbishing? Why not let them do the stripping since the clubs will probably need to be replated?

I am looking to remove the chrome nickel combination to get a clean raw finish so I can cold blue the clubheads...its quite a popular trend in clubs today for increased feel, and the rust that accumulates on the face imparts more spin on the ball without damaging the cover as much as a 'carbite' coating.

Robert, I am trying to do the same thing to my sand wedge. If you have any luck, please let me know how you went about stripping the chrome. Thanks.

It is best to just ask a plating shop to strip them because it is a difficult and dangerous process if you are not trained and equipped. Hydrochloric acid (Muriatic Acid [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]) will strip the chrome, but then you need a proprietary stripper for the nickel.
