Tin Plating Fishing Hooks


Hello! I am having some difficulty in tin plating fish hooks. Because of their shape and small size, they tend to attach themselves and bunch up resulting in uneven plating quality. Any advice would be most welcome. I need to plate only about 25 kgs per hour.

You probably will have to rack plate these parts, but you can try running smaller loads or consider using vibratory plater.

A suggestion that may work, put some steel media in with your hooks. the hooks may still get tangled up but if you use shot, might keep the conductivity and plate good for you. With small parts it is hit and miss but have had great success with this.
