Re: 15gal Tri-crome kit bargain

I have a 15gal triple chrome plating line that I must sell.
I purchased it new from Caswell in 2003 for a hobby and extra income. I wanted to get good at it real quick, and I really turned out some beautiful motorcycle and car parts once I got the hang of it. It is definitely an art. I am an electronics technician, and was always fascinating when Iwould remove the plated part out of the tank and see the transformation.
I have chrome, nickel, flash copper, acid copper, stripping tank,cleaning tank mounted in a custom table for the tanks and painted gray epoxy. It is really a nice setup for someone who wants a hobby or make some extra money.
12V/200A 120V Aldonex SCR Rectifier, 30A 12vdc rectifier, 6 15gal tanks,pumps, anodes, buss bars, 3titanium and 1 ceramic heater with thermostats, scrubber tank for the chrome (never needed this due to no fumes). I'm moving and don't have any place to keep this equipment. I wanted this a hobby and extra income. I used the copper and nickel plating quite a bit while I was learning, but less than 1 hour of use on the 200Amp rectifier. I cooked all the water out of the tanks, the crystals are in the tank and all you would need to do is add the DI water and crank it up.
I'll let this system go cheap, and consider meeting you halfway with the system if you want to save on the freight. I invested about $10K in all of the equipment. Make me a reasonable offer. The Aldonex 12/200A (120V Input) SCR (not tap switch) retails for $3-4K. I'll let all this equipment go cheap!

Re: 15gal Tri-crome kit bargain

good luck with all that.....I had a football once, threw it for hundreds of touchdowns......paid $10 for it @ Walmart....I can't get $1 for it today......

First mistake, you need good chemistry, that is in working condition to bring value to the sell......what you have is a emerald rock garden that can plate a Harley-Davidson bumper.....

Shoot me a private message and I can tell you all about a place to list this for sell....that is if you are okay with paying a brokerage fee

just a thought

Re: 15gal Tri-crome kit bargain

I will have to side on Skelton on this one.  I would buy it for a dollar if you are willing to pay the HazMat fees to ship it.  No waste allowed!  At this point any brighteners and levelers are all broken down.  Not worth much.

Let me know.

Re: 15gal Tri-crome kit bargain

Harris,

By cooking it down to just crystals, you have broken down all of the organics.  Any knowledgeable plater would know that the crystals, even after replenishment with DI water, are basically useless.

Your only hope in recovering cost is to ship your waste to a TSD and sell the remaining for scrap.  You may get some money for your rectifier.  Your tanks will go for pennies on the dollar.

Please be careful with the chromic acid as the dust can cause serious harm.

I was not trying to be joker in as much as your advertisement.  I can appreciate you wanting to recover your costs from an experiment, however you purchased chemicals and equipment for a purpose and the consequences with them.  I do not know if you were honestly duped, however there are strict regulations by the EPA and state and local officials regarding our sacred practice.

With that said and as Skelton alluded to, you may be able to find someone that can help you transfer your supplies with or without risk.  I know Paul Skelton is a very knowledgeable expert on aiding in resale of used equipment.  You may want to try him.  Otherwise my bid at a dollar stands.

Sincerely,

Ira Donovan, M.S.F.
