Easy Nickel And Copper Electroplating Method

Simple, cheap, and reliable way to plate metals. I used this method to plate the screens in my Edison Battery... Check my page at: http://www.noonco.com/nickel/ For FAQs and less expensive alternatives. Just in: I see that Amazon has Nickel Ammonium Sulfate for only $21 for 100 grams. The address I found was: http://www.amazon.com/Ammonium-Sulfate-Laboratory-Hazardous-Chemical/dp/B008V5ZFB0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1390583233&sr=8-3&keywords=nickel+ammonium+sulfate SPECIAL NOTE: A lot of viewers have written to say that the MSDS lists nickel salts as carcinogenic, but I have not had a high degree on concern because I also see many other common items listed as similar carcinogenic risks. These include Diesel Exhaust, gasoline, paint fumes, plastic glue, lighter fluid, lead and many others. So I believe with care, most of these can be handled safely. Please be cautious and respectful of any chemical. It's not worth it to get hurt. 3 G's: Goggles, gloves and good ventilation... P.S. After many suggestions that I experiment with less expensive Nickel Sulfate, I've found a less expensive chemical combo that also makes a fantastic and shiny coat! I have this up for you at www.noonco.com/nickel Thought I'd pass it on. :-) P.S. For those interested in the Edison Battery, check out my pages at: http://www.noonco.com/edison/
