Most of that time was waiting for the plating to happen.

I wish I'd had more of my own parts lined up. It takes me longer to set up than to plate a part like this.

I need to go through my inventory and find all the caps, plugs and pumps with worn-off plating and refresh them.

Timm,  What are the threads on that cap?  That looks suspiciously like the AGM KK Mod 3 cap...

Does it use a pip or a check ball?

Looks great!

If you have some old fuel caps laying around that aren't currently necessary, boil them in water with baking soda to remove the paint.  I did this with three a couple of years back.  One came out shiny nickel, one came out satin nickel, and one was unplated brass.  Unplated brass would be a good candidate.

Oh, yeah, Jim, I need to do that. I use lye and ultrasound, but same idea. I also need to clean and polish a bunch of pump parts and plate them.

I even got a new tool for smoothing and polishing: https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/new-tooltoy-10578744?pid=1311883927

Looks awesome Timm! Can I assume correctly that you did each piece separate? If so how much trouble did you have with the thread tolerance afterwards?
Quote
Gunhippie
I did both assembled. As long as the air screw is in, it isn't obvious.

Even with the heaviest plating I can do so far, there just isn't enough to affect thread tolerance. I did the whole assy. at once because it was easier.

Haha! Nice one. I don't mean to deface a Coleman product but imagine how beautiful a fully nickel plated 200A tall hat would look, I'd love that! Kind of like a 243!  I wish cars still had excessive chrome, there's no such thing as too much.

Also, that stove is absolutely beautiful! I've seen your other post about it and can't get over how nice it looks, you did some amazing work to it. Smoothing that burner casting would have been extremely tedious. I have some experience with polishing aluminum so I could only imagine the prep work that goes into this. Have you plated any lantern vents yet?

Shiny Object Syndrome (Objectivius Shinium Syndromus) is defined as the attraction to objects that exhibit a glassy, polished, gleaming or otherwise shiny appearance. Something as simple as a reflection in your peripheral vision may easily distract your attention. Over time, you’ll find that your attention to said object is directly correlated to it’s shininess and your attention fades as the shininess wears off.

See .... be glad that all of your Coleman products are not all "shiny", or you'd have to spend all your time polishing them ..... or you'd lose interest in the hobby/items that you have .... and you'd turn into a Magpie!  Just say'n,

As those of us who have restored QuickLites learn, the nickel-plated vent doesn't stay shiny after the first hour or so of use. Same for the grate and burner bowl on that shiny stove. I don't know the chemistry involved, but the nickel quickly turns black, blue or brown with heat.

Timm,

Can you point me to the original post where you started nickel plating?  The 'advanced' search with this forum software should probably be called 'primitive' search.  We can no longer search for topics started a user or search sorting by latest date. 

In particular, I want to confirm whether this is the nickel acetate you used, and the quantity.  Is 4oz enough?

Thanks!

That's the same stuff. It goes a long ways, as the solution can be re-used almost indefinitely. I like to have one solution for brass/copper etc, and one for steel/cast iron, as the solution gets "muddy" when plating ferrous metals.

I bought the 4 oz size and got a lot of use out of it--it will make several quarts. I later bought the 8 oz for larger projects, and have a lot of it left.

I haven't been measuring it hardly at all, just mix up a nice, emerald green solution.

Search sucks for me. I can't even search within my own posts. I'll see if I can dig back and find the thread after work.
