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.

Plug N' Plate nickel kit Review by George R Geyer Jr
I used this kit to touch up the plating on my pocket watch. I followed the instructions and the plating worked out just fine. I did order the small points first to do the fine work and it worked as described. This is a great to for my shop. (Posted on 9/14/14)

Cost effective with beautiful result Review by Steven Wymor
I bought this kit to plate a part that I manufactured out of solid brass for my turntable. The first time I plated the part the result was a bit mottled and uneven. I was able to remove the first plating layer, then sanded with 800 grit paper and then polish. Final cleaning was done with Simple Green to remove all polish residue and oils from handling. I wore nitrile rubber gloves while cleaning. When plating, I used the dip method and the second time around was the charm. Result looked as if it was professionally done and the brass is now protected from tarnishing with a nice thick nickel plate. Great product for what I needed and well worth the expense.
