    WD40 is inferior to FLUID FILM, BOESHIELD or LPS3

    Most guys are wrong !!!!!!!!!

    I use an old Coleman double burner white gas camp stove...stainless pots and trays to cook in a must, stainless dip basket with fine mesh for small parts and hardware...a thermometer, tongs or dippers.
    Bring temp up to 200 F and drop parts in solution. When fizzing stops, plating is complete. Rinse and spray with Boeshield or similar. Real easy...start with clean, rust free and pit-free hardware...I bead blast most parts.

    But WD40 will work fine. I bet I have bolts I plated 15 years ago and sprayed them with WD40. They haven't rusted yet.

    I love this process, works great. I learned about it from Chuck years ago. Can anybody confirm that Palmetto Enterprises, Scott Owens is still in business.

    I used the Palmetto Manganese chemical treatment followed up with Boeshield. Works nicely too. 0908191846a.jpg 0908191829.jpg 0908191828b.jpg 0908191813a.jpg 0908191812.jpg
