Q. I just bought a 20 year old house with roman tub in bathroom. We are remodeling, and changing all the sink fixtures from gold to brushed nickel. However, the tub hardware seems to not be identifiable by all the local specialty bathroom stores, so can't find replacement parts. Thinking of refinishing. Any leads on a shop that has done this?Stephen Groves
Q. Need a pro to polish a stainless steel motor home bumper. Crease was been straightened after an encounter with a gate post so that I could tow my SUV, but the shop that did the repair was not equipped to do the polishing. I am in middle Tennessee with flexible plans to go east into the Carolinas after the 4th of July and on into Virginia for August. I can remove the bumper and bring it to the repair site. It is flat, 8 ft long and 11 inches wide.David Coffman

Q. Hi. I'm working on producing plastic scale model kits of hot rod cars. I need a very affordable Vacuum Metalizing company to "chrome plate" the small plastic parts in my kits... preferably in the USA, but you can be anywhere in the world if shipping to me in Hawaii is affordable.
I can set up the parts to be positioned on sprues or racks that make it the most convenient for you to finish them.

Q. I am currently looking into eliminating the necessity of a customer to use hardened steel inserts on a wear surface. The mold is made out of aluminum and I had first thought of hardcoat, but came across PEO as a newer, and better coating method.

Q. Does somebody know who does blackened Steel finishing in the NYC area?

RFQ: I am looking for a plating shop in greater Chicago that can plate ductile copper from .010" to .060"thick. It needs to be thick and uniform as the coated steel roll will undergo a knurling process where the copper is cold flowed.The process will most likely require that the part be rotated during plating for uniformity especially if the tank is horizontal and has U shaped electrodes. The base material is steel and the base roll should be nickel plated to act as an adhesion layer. Without this nickel the copper has a tendency to delaminate during use. The rolls can be between 4" and 12" in diameter and form 60" to 216" long. The ability to nickel and hard chrome plate the post knurled roll is desirable.Dick LeCompte
RFQ: I'm searching for a company who can place a decorative gold plate/leaf, of the letter T, on a ~5 inch diameter sphere. I've not done any work with gold before so this is all new to me, but I'd like to get a general sense for the costs and time involved to do something like this. We will likely be using 6061 T6 Aluminum for the sphere.Nikki Stewart
RFQ: We currently purchase hot rolled mild steel slit to 1.250" wide and coiled. We purchase over 1 million lbs per year. We would like to either purchase the steel pre-galvanized yellow. Can anyone help or make suggestions?
Do pre-galv coils get galvanized at the steel mill or somewhere after?
RFQ: I'm restoring a 1971 Chevy, and I'm pondering black zinc Vs black phosphate for everything from bolts and nuts to hood hinges. From what I understand, black phosphate has a magnesium component which makes it black. I think I prefer the black phosphate look, which more closely resembles the original parts, but black zinc is more corrosive resistant....This truck lives in a dry climate and is a "garage queen"....Few questions please.
1. Does black phosphate require a coating, such as oil and wax? If so, is this part of the phosphate process provided by the service?
2. How small a part can be zinc plated or phosphate coated? If possible, I'd like to have the U-nuts (e.g., some take a #8 screw) and J-Nuts (e.g., nut welded on for 5/16" bolt) done as well.
3. I live in Northern Nevada. Can anyone recommend a phosphate coating service? Close would be nice. There's at least one black zinc plating service in the Reno area, which is nice. Have to say I'm a little nervous about sending anything out via the mail, due to the time put into these parts, and they're not practical to replace. In other terms, I'd be REAL upset if I lost any.
Thank you for any input/suggestions
RFQ: Still searching for shop to re plate steel parts on Yamaha Motorcycles. "Gold" plating on gas caps, carb tops and grab rails.

RFQ: Please Please Please help me.I purchased two years ago an aluminum fuel tank for 1995 mistubishi eclipse.

RFQ: Well, from looking at previous responses to questions on this topic, it would appear that we absolutely should be able to achieve .001" anodized coating on 2219. Can anyone recommend an anodizer who might be capable of doing this?
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!)

RFQ: I am looking for a shop that does true black chrome plating for a custom project. I need to have a raw aluminum showcase piece with all parts and screws done in black chrome. This job has 40 pieces in total including stainless steel screws, air fittings, rods up to 9 inches long and aluminum parts no larger than 8.5" x 2.5" x 1", and some cylindrical parts. Because this project involves high pressure air fittings and moving parts, I cannot have alternatives to actual black chrome plating.
Painting, anodizing, and Cerekote are not viable options for this project, please only true black chrome plating.

Can anyone recommend someone reputable in NY, NJ or anywhere near by?
RFQ: We have 300 series stainless steel hose clamps that need to be plated so that they are black. This is for automotive use.Pilun Chen
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.
