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.
