topic 4219 build home-brew chrome shop


Hello Mr or Ms peers,

I am interested in learning more about chrome plating at home. I would like to be able to plate small parts from a motorcycle in a small container using household sources like bateries, power supplies or rectifiers. Will need electrodes, chemical bath solution and instruction.

Thanks for your help.

Dear P.R.K.,

Without training and proper safety equipment electroplating can be very dangerous. Also, the wastes you will generate are hazardous, which require special and expensive disposal at regulated hazardous waste landfills. You would be much better off going to a local plater to have your parts plated.

I am interested in learning how to chrome and perhaps start a bussines out of it with a friend. Do you know the best websites that will be able to help me with what I need to learn or where I can learn it?

Thank you.
