Does anybody know how to do nickel plating? I want to plate some of my pistol/folder parts. Can it be done at home or should I send it out, Who should I send it to?

Thanks in advance,

Nickel plating can be tricky as well as dangerous.
I would advise seeking professional help.
Just look for plating in phone book or internet.

I'm planning on getting their Plug 'n' Plate workshop kit, which is brush plating style. It comes with a variety of metal solutions, and their nickle kit is only $28. Give it a look.

You might want to also take a look at electroless-nickel plating. It has some distinct advantages over the electrical plating process.
