How to remove nickel plating from brass





I have an old piece of scientific equipment that is brass with what I believe is a nickel plate finish. I wish to remove the nickel plating without damaging the brass surface. My question is whether there is a acid mixture which will accomplish this or whether electrolysis is necessary. I would prefer to simply dissolve the plating if possible and need to know the composition of the appropriate solution. I am a professional chemist and have access to any needed chemicals, the training to handle them and prepare solutions, and the means for safe disposal of the waste products. Thank you

I wish I had words of encouragement for you, Mr. Hennigan, but you really need to look into some other occupation. Nickel-chrome plating is very capital intensive, and involves toxic and carcinogenic chemicals that require specialized exhaust systems, a wastewater treatment system, etc.
