4 Simple Steps To Brush Plate Your Small Parts

Plug N' Plate® is a new concept in plating small parts. Our unique mains power pack supplies just the right amount of power allowing you to brush, and in some situations, dip plate your smaller components.

The Plug N' Plate® system will also allow you to patch repair areas where the original plating has worn away.

Plug N' Plate® is ideal for vintage vehicle restorers, antique collectors and dealers, and small workshops doing prototype work.

What could be simpler? The Plug N' Plate® wand is attached to the red plug on the Power Pack, and the alligator clip is attached to the work-piece. The end of the wand is covered in an absorbent bandage, which is soaked in the plating solution for a few seconds.

By simply stroking the part with swift brush strokes, the circuit is closed and the plating metal bearing solution goes to work, depositing its beautiful layer onto the object.

Plug N' Plate® is perfect for gold plating car emblems. Simply strip the chrome off with Chrome Stripper, then apply the gold. Full instructions are included.

Plug N' Plate® may be applied onto most metals. To see which kit plates onto which metal, read our instruction booklet. To plate onto Stainless Steel, use the Plug N' Plate® Copper system. When gold plating onto stainless, apply our Stainless Steel Activator For Gold with a stainless wand and 4.5V power pack, then you may gold plate directly onto the stainless part.

We do not recommend plating aluminum directly with our Plug N' Plate® kits. Use our Flash Copper Kit with zincate primer first, then you may Plug N' Plate® onto the copper. To plate plastic, or other non-conductive parts, spray with Conductive Paint, dip in Tinning Solution, then tank plate with acid copper, then use a Plug N' Plate® kit.

No luck with rub-on but electroplating worked great Review by clifford Walter

I had no luck with the rub on method but set things up for electroplating and had great success with that. It was fast and did a beautiful job. (Posted on 11/24/13)
A Terrific Product Review by Harry Quandt

I have never plated (or contemplated plating) anything prior to purchasing this product. I was modifying a Crosman 2240 CO2 pistol and thought that stripping and nickel plating the barrel and tube would look really nice. After reading the product description and doing a little research, I decided that it was worth a try. I did, and, WOW! Having done the recommended prep work on the parts (full stripping, polishing and cleaning) I used the Plug N' Plate system as directed with really wonderful results. For a modest investment the outcome was extremely rewarding! Now I need to look for other stuff to plate... (Posted on 9/24/13)
patience pays off Review by jay

I wanted to nickle plate a cylinder from an old .38. I had great luck with the gold pnp
so expected the results to be as easily identified as the gold. But I had polished the steel to a mirror finish, the nickle went on just as bright, just as clean. I did three passes over it and then polished with a soft cloth. It looks more like sterling than nickle!! great product!! (Posted on 6/2/13)
Excellent value Review by Larry Bloomer

I used this kit to do a mini-tank plate of the bolt and safety from an old Winchester 67a boy's rifle, preferring nickel to the original chrome. And then I used the equipment plus a bottle of solution to gold plate the trigger of an ancient Smith & Wesson top-break revolver. The system works very well, although I prefer to use it as a miniature tank plate rather than actual brush plating.
I did brush-plate a $1 US coin, though, just for fun. That worked out well, too.
Very handy little kit to have if you deal a lot with small parts. (Posted on 5/9/13)

Good product Review by Matthew

I first bought this kit from Micro Mark tools and had no idea it was a Caswell product. Started doing some brass items and an old watch I had. It didn't do so well on my 1911 .45 though. The gun wouldn't take to the nickel at all. Then I tried to copper plate it first then do the nickel. It took the copper plating nicely but still wouldn't take the nickel. This stuff works great on the brass and watch and some tools I had hut it wouldn't at all stick to my gun. Gave up and Rediff the gun in Copy Chrome, now it looks amazing. All in all this kit will do both brushing and dip plating nicely. Glad I found this kit before I waisted a lot of money to a gunsmith to do the job. (Posted on 4/23/12)
