A Review by Ted Mooney:
2nd ed., 1986, hardcover, 185 pages is illustrated and reviewed.
Larry Durney was one of the luminaries of the plating industry.
"Trouble in your tank?" is an attempt to educate the reader into an organized and efficient methodology towards solving plating problems, while simultaneously transmitting hundreds of little tips learned in a lifetime.
The book introduces Durney's "12 Rules", explaining by way of anecdotes the value of each individually, collectively, and employed in the right sequence.

Also included are "trouble tables" for each type of plating, and individual chapters on certain classic problems. The volume includes over a hundred "shop problems" illustrating the application of the rules.
