Did this video help you?

The Federal Farmer: Smoking in a plate shop is a dumb as eating in the shop.

l konuk: I have a Question plz. You polished the part after acid copper and hanget directly to Nickel. I think you have some pretreatmens beetween polishing and nickel plating . plz can you explain the treatmens. I have to plate some times acide copper platet parts but I get allways roughnes on the surface. my pretratments for cu plated parts are cath. eleckrocleaning rinse acid dip and rinse and than to nickel bath

DaveRol Rolland: very interesting video chuck. I just saw another one about a Cadi grill rest. here's the link http://youtu.be/27tD_K2t84U for all of us who love chrome plating 

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

frxvt: .. if the air ventillation is good, no problem the dog :)

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

MrHeizer42: plating without kathodic movement thats dumb...

theduke502: @RideswithChuck Hey Chuck, where is Mark Silich's shop located?

jagman05: hey buddy im a real plater,38yrs experience,plating components in every finish you can name for the automotive and aerospace industries,and believe me there is a need for PPE.In that clip the guy is handling 2 of the most toxic chemicals on the planet,cyanide and hexavalent chrome.,also nickel and its base salts are carciogenic. and the spray(fumes)created in the chrome tank when in use are both toxic AND corrosive.Hexavalent chrome will be banned in europe by 2015, and as for the dog!?!?,

chromedoc: Yes, definitely not too bright to be plating without gloves or rubber apron. Let's hope OSHA doesn't check out YOUTUBE!

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

RideswithChuck: @zzzdogutube It is easy to get upside with cars just like in houses. This air cleaner will go into a very interesting Cadillac. I was scared to death to get my video camera too close to this virgin bit of chrome plating.

rastaunavailable: the dog is next for chrome plating:D

talfacprez: Great video series.

RideswithChuck: @theduke502 1 800 403 4545

kustomCoupe30: Kool video on the steps of chrome plating. Far as workers and what not, the shop showed craftmenship and quality! Hard to find that old skool skill and care now days! Them guys know about the chemicals. It's just guys continue to carry old habbits. Note him smoking @10:19pm! These guys were keepin it real! LOL! Plus I am sure taped long ago...... ;)

David Hill: looks great ..!

John Hampton: 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.

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

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

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!!!!

glennifer king: Shawn- adhesion

zzzdogutube: That is crazy.. $ I wouldn't want to know the price either. Beautiful part but very expensive and a lot of work. Scratch it or dent it and you will be sick.. That is why I don't get my Nash parts chromed. They will cost more than the car is worth.

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.

Neo Quello: very nice... but all that sanding and grinding and chemicals... and not a single worker wearing eye protection, hearing protection or respirator... looks like a terrible place to work... and all those workers look nervous as hell.... something shady about all this.. !!

santiago santiago: how much to crome a bumper?

RideswithChuck: Last summer.

Lucci Banton: where the best chroming platin at?

The Shade Tree Fix-it Man: Awesome!

HITCHHIKERNAIEM: whats up with the people . i dont see them using ,masks... i do chrome plating and the chemicals makes me sick some times ..

2stroketurbo: Holy Chrome ! I had no idea. eye opening for sure

Alien003 Hydrogen nitrogen: Hay listen u sob lol

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 :)

Fernando Carminholi: I want to see 2000 parts chromed per day

citydriver: not exactly smart havin a dog around acids and cyanide etc

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
