A week of cleaning, sorting, and wiring

No-one ever said this job would be glamorous. The last week was spent cleaning and categorizing in preparation for electroplating. The better the prep the better the result so countless hours have been spent polishing bolts, nuts, and hardware. These parts are then wired together using copper wire. This procedure is often done by the platers but to save a few pennies, and to keep things in order, we decided to do all of our own wiring together. This way fasteners are grouped by sub-assembly and are easily identified when we get them back.


  1. Any chance of getting a preliminary copy of your finish spread sheet? I am cleaning and wire brushing now getting ready for the finisher and could use a second opinion for 03872 246 gt!
