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/

Easiest Copper Plating Method Revealed
This is probably the easiest way to create reliable, attractive copper plate on many different metals. Plating can be tricky, but this method comes as close as I've ever seen to being "foolproof." Which is great, for a fool like me! :-) This video includes the first FATALITY that I've had in any of my my videos so far. So please, lets always wear our safety gear!

Easy And Inexpensive Copper Plating Trick!
Simple, cheap, and reliable way to copper plate metals. This video is just an "extra" info video for the nickel/copper plating video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Xo43sfLgY Please check out the the main video for a more in depth instructional. Thanks! Just got this from a plater regarding stacking cells in parallel: Hello, I watched your copper plating video and then went to your site where someone suggested wiring batteries in parallel to achieve higher amperage and thus increase plating time. in the discussion of amperage one needs to observe the ohms law. To be more accurate the resistance of the liquid that the plating is done in, needs to be known. Because current can be increased two ways. One way is to decrease resistance ( use a liquid with lower resistance) the other way is to increase voltage. You cannot just increase amperage by putting batteries in parallel unless the resistance of the liquid is so low that the battery cannot supply the amperage in which case it goes dead very fast.

Restoring an American Made Crescent Wrench with Electrolysis Rust Removal
In this video rust removal by electrolysis. I picked up this old rusty wrench in the free bucket at a garage sale. In this video I use electrolysis to derust it as well as a true temper hatchet I had laying around. the Wrench is an old Crescent Tool Company Double headed Wrench. This size has since been discontinued. I picked this wrench up in a bucket marked free at a garage sale. One step that i skipped on camera was that I used a propane torch to slightly heat the mechanisms to free them of the final rust. I was able to reassemble the wrench and set it aside for a day when I may reforge it into a new tool.
