60338. Need Synthetic Gold Plating of Motorcycle Parts

November 28, 2016

RFQ: I have a number of early '80s Yamaha Motorcycle parts that were plated in what was termed "syn-gold" or synthetic obviously. They include; gas caps, carb tops, grab rails and some other items.

So far I've been unable to find a shop who can figure out what this process is. As close as I have come is a refinish of brass that's pretty darn close... but not correct.

I've used the plating on bath fixtures as an example. If you shop gold fixtures (not brass) you get a nice finish that is nearly identical to what I'm after. I've reached out to a few fixture suppliers with no luck given their runs are far more mass production orieted. I get it. But there has got to be someone who can do this.

(Posted previously for a Black Chrome shop for exhaust pipes and I found one of those so thank you!)

60272. Bulk polishing of stainless steel friction weld samples

September 13, 2016

RFQ: We are an oilfield service company who provide subsea friction welding of threaded studs to pipeline and/or offshore structure. This is often for the subsequent attachment of anodes.

We have a need to produce 100-200 polished weld samples. This will likely be an M10 diameter threaded stainless steel stud to a 3" round stainless steel disc, pre-engraved with our company name. These will ultimately be handed out as promotional items.

So I would produce the friction stud weld, then hand these over to be polished. I'm not sure what kind of finish is possible (assume 304 SS) but these should look good enough to hand out to potential clients? We would also be interested if there is any coating that could be applied to protect the finish?

Can you contact me if you offer this service and have the capacity to prepare qty 100 samples? Along with quote and lead time.

RFQ: Hello,
I would like to find a Chrome plater (anywhere in the US) that can assist me in re-chroming some vintage automobile spotlights.

They are made of brass and my hopes are to be able to bypass copper on these to help retain the stamp. There are some pot metal parts but they are all in good condition with very little corrosion. Have not had a lot of luck locally, I need to get them done and done correctly and I don't mind shipping. I am trying to find a go to plater I can send things to and trust. Can send very detailed photographs of everything. Please e-mail me if you are interested.

60184. Need Heavy Metal Chess Sets Plated

May 4, 2016

RFQ: Hello. I have made a chess set out of fasteners and it has been accepted for exhibition at the World Chess Hall of Fame in St. Louis. I have been working on this project for about 3 years. I use zinc plated nuts and bolts for one side. The other side I have been priming and spray painting with gold paint. The problem is it easily scratches off and I want a quality product. People have been asking me to sell a chess set to them. I will try to attach a picture.

To fix this problem, I would like to have nuts and bolts plated with trivalent chromate for the "gold" side; i.e. one half would be zinc the other half would be zinc yellow.

My questions are: Is trivalent chromate (yellow zinc) hazardous to touch after plating? Will the shine of a nut or bolt plated with yellow zinc wear off over time? and most importantly, is there a plating service available where I could send samples of my pieces to find out how much it would cost to have them plated?

60216. Yamaha "Midnight Special" bike's "Gold" refinishing work

May 1, 2016

RFQ: Greetings.

In early 80 Yamaha produced a line of bikes with a black and gold them called Midnight Specials.

I'm searching for a shop to do some refinishing work on a number of items. I've heard them being everything from real gold (doubt that) to vacuum metalizing, etc. But to date nobody can ID what we have going on here. The closest I can describe this is a gold faucet from Home Depot. Closer to brass than a deep rich gold color.

I sprung for four carb tops recently that were supposed to be correct. They are not. Far closer to a 'rose gold' color than the correct one.

There are number of items done in gold; carb tops, grab bars, caps ... and of course some plastic items as well.

If anyone has a line on the correct finish for this I'm eagerly looking to do some business with you. I have a number of items which over time will be refinished.

March 31, 2016

I am looking for wire plating over low carbon steel. I can provide the steel as necessary.
