Kelvin Matthews: I chrome plate and silver plate for a profession, and also pre finish, and whoever says that it shouldnt be done without cathodic movement really doesnt know too much about the process, .... as for the gold plate - that was done separately

glennifer king: Shawn- adhesion

glennifer king: That is crazy!!! That guys processes are so tight it's unbelievable! I know why you gave him a blank check that's gotta be very pricy but well worth it. I've never seen that quality and attention to detail before. Who is this wizard!!!!

Clint Rockfist: The chrome shop guy, I know his REAL name. He is called the Chrome GOD. No disrespect intended to any other GOD. This guy is very very good indeed. I saw a sign on the workshop wall, "Made in U.S.A" That says so much about this persons' worth ethic. I am in the U.K and I am going to try and build my own bike, and would only be happy with the chrome parts looking as excellent as he would make them. A great video. Thank You very much for kindly posting it.

John Hampton The Man From Oz: A thoroughly entertaining, eye-opening insight into the craft of chrome plating - and a CRAFT it is, something those DIY projects haven't a hope in hell of replicating. Oh sure, you might get a chrome finish, but it won't come within a bull's roar when compared to what a professional can produce - not by a long shot. And I could tell by the customers reaction that he was over the moon with result, and he like me wouldn't begrudge the cost when one considers how labour intensive the work is.

MrHeizer42: plating without kathodic movement thats dumb...

joremunderfoemangler: I chrome plate for a living myself. We wear safety glasses but that's about it as far as ppe. Our setup is with tanks with hoists to move the bars so we only touch the part raw and when its done. Our chrome is a low fume type so unless were splashed it wont bother us. The worst part is cleaning out the cleaners and putting our acid salts in instant choking if you're allergic to it..we do wear full Ppe when we clean and fill our tanks. It is truly a mans job or a womans if she can lift

ak68524793: No need for ppe....haha that's the most stupid statement I have heard about a plating shop it just would of taken that guy dropping the part into the cyanide copper and splashing in his face hope he gets paid well

Shawn Hawkins: What happens if you chrome plate plain brass without the nickle plate? Would it protect and shine the brass?

Luke .Waterhouse: How did you guys gold plate the last section without getting gold on the rest???

HITCHHIKERNAIEM: im chrome plating a hummer engine guard tomorow for a customer od mine,,,, dis is hard work man, especialy if u dont have proper tools....... nice work in the video ,, keep it up :)

Perk E: Thomas looked good, but bud no PPE bad message, and you know what your doing ?, but there is a G in doing not an F ? LOL, the guy was right, put on apron , some neoprene gloves, and face shield, and the other guys is right, get the dog off that floor the HCL will destrioy the skin on his paws
