An insightful resource for home machinists and model engineers, Electroplating for Amateurs is a complete manual detailing the principles and practices of several forms and functions of plating.

Detailing the techniques of depositing a thin metallic layer on an object for decoration, corrosion protection, electrical conductivity, wear resistance, and more, this guide provides solutions for small workshops looking to plate with any of the customary metals using simple and inexpensive equipment. Although electroplating materials and methods are much improved from some shown inside this classic edition, it is still an incredibly useful resource for makers everywhere.

This 64-page classic handbook features an introduction to and the basic principles of electroplating as well as various fundamental techniques and insightful sections on electrical supply, the electroplating tank, cleaning the substrate, the electrolyte, electroforming and electroplating on non-conductors, electroless electroplating, the finishing of aluminum and its alloys, and more. You'll find helpful diagrams and charts throughout the book alongside the classic text.

Author Jack Poyner is a professional model engineer involved in all forms of plating. He is aware of what's valuable for beginners and what is best suited for experts, making this guide thoughtful, useful, and practical for amateurs.

Although no longer common practice to electroplate as described, this classic edition of Electroplating for Amateurs is a noteworthy resource for anyone involved in the trade!
