That process sounds very interesting. I wonder whether it will lend itself to the home plater?
I had a go this summer working with a replica chrome kit and, like Martin, found the results pleasing and cost-effective (after some practice). I may get around to describing my experience in detail at some stage.
However, I don't think it would be practical for large items like Jennings cabinet castings. They would require too much current and electrolyte. Although it resembles chrome quite closely, it's actually nickel-cobalt. The cobalt imparts hardness, corrosion-resistance and a colder look than nickel alone. Nevertheless, it has a slightly warmer tone than chrome. It requires fairly meticulous, systematic attention to detail and is potentially a bit hazardous. Not for the faint-hearted, perhaps.
