i did it alredy crome  and Chrome plated is a dangerous thing and one must take extreme care its very hard To machine i use metal nickel  Not coper nickel aloy acétate What are the uses of Nickel?
Nickel has been a favored component of coins because it is bright and takes a fine polish and because it is lighter than copper, silver and other metals commonly used in coin currency. In 1850, Switzerland became the first modern nation to officially employ nickel in its coinage. The U.S. soon followed suit in the 1850s and ’60s when it introduced nickel to its penny and five-cent pieces to make them lighter. Though the U.S. five-cent coin only contained 25 percent nickel, it quickly became known as “the nickel.” The first pure nickel coin was issued by Switzerland in 1881; Austria and Hungary followed suit in 1893.



Because nickel does not easily oxidize, or rust, the metal was adapted as an electroplating material in the 1850s. Electroplating is a process in which metal ions in a chemical solution are attracted to a solid metal electrode. As the ions bind to the surface of the metal they form a uniform, thin coating. Electroplating a metal surface with nickel can form a layer that protects against corrosion. As the electrochemistry of nickel became better understood, it was adapted for use in batteries. Today nickel and cadmium compounds are used to produce rechargeable nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries.

By far the largest use of nickel today is in the steel industry, which uses approximately two-thirds of the world’s annually produced nickel. The metal has the unusual properties of being hard — strong, able to withstand breaking under high forces — and ductile — able to yield or bend before breaking or cracking. In addition, nickel is chemically similar to iron but with particularly good resistance to oxidation. Because of its similarity to iron, nickel can readily substitute for iron in steel alloys or mixtures. The addition of nickel to steel increases its strength, ductility, its rust resistance and its value.

So-called stainless steels, which contain chromium and between 5 and 25 percent nickel,

Dear David, I come in silence following your anodizing progress and you are really achieving very good finishes.
Maybe in a few days I will try to do something here with some pieces that I have, so ... do you dare to make us an instruction manual to follow to achieve those results?
for example:
Necessary materials
Temperatures and procedures per step.
It would be very very interesting to be able to do this.
My sincere thanks in advance

At the beginning the part must be ultra cleanDiy   Anodizing  - Page 2 16159913
For the mixture of acid and water 1 \ 4 water wit acid just acid is ok wil work Sometimes the part takes longer than others take the time dont try boost volt amp Unless you are able to keep the acid under 0-3 'or less A missed part is very difficult to correct Monitor the temperature The piece anodize seal with heat try To not let parts out the water To long if very hot in the place

Somtime its very long somtime faster We have to keep an eye on the progress The polished part should turn matt after anodizing or darker y wil continue explain after its ready for the next step Diy   Anodizing  - Page 2 16159914

Once the parts are ready Rinse the parts in distilled water To rinse it well, use two containers now Dip dab draw the color it's up to you After the desired color is reached  Let the piece sit for a little while
Now heat the water very close to the boiling point Soaking the parts in hot water for a few seconds is enough To see if it is successful Or not if this part discolored it is not a succest and its It is sometimes very hard to start from the beginning.Sometimes the faults remain after second atempt

David, where do you buy your battery acid from up here in Canada? Just curious as I do think I want to try this while on holidays in a few weeks and would like to get my supplies ready. And as for color using bingo dabbers. Do you use full strength, or do you dilute the bingo dabber ink with water as well? If I am reading this correctly, is it 1 (one) part battery acid to 4 (four) parts water? Thank you.
