My System Specs

Default

for the last time on this one little issue.
joel himself does not own a plating shop or do the plating work himself.he has sourced out a plater,who through trial and error has come up with arguably the best nickel and chrome plating service available.
i know what i speak of as i own 2 pieces of his work.

and fyi he did take a couple ek pieces to the plater he uses and he did get these pieces stripped,nickel plated then chromed-and they look great.

Which is the reason why a plating hardness test could not be performed on the sample I sent in for testing and would have been included in the fees we paid. Minimum thickness for that particular test is 20 microns of plating, Eddy's ****ing block only had 12.7 microns. Thanks Eddy for boinking me out of a test
