I know this idea has been discussed , but did anyone ever post such a thread? I got a shipment from Caswell Canada today , ordered on monday last week and arriving on my island paradise on Friday! I'll delve into that later today. Here are the contents of Caswell's Cobalt Plating Kit , which I felt was a good way to get into plating and will fit my needs , I think. : Nice and tidy , well packaged. I would like to start by asking if any members here have heard of , or tried , an old model RR trick. The trick is thus: The part , some solder and an amount of Cream of Tartar is placed in a pan with some water and boiled. For how long I dont know , but the solder through some chemical/physical/chemical/witchcraft is 'plated ' onto the part. Anyone tried this? Please feel free to add your experiences' and info here. Thank you ,Steve
