It's nickel, but the plating solution contains brighteners that allow it to have a much brighter sheen than nickel normally has.

Just thinking what that would cost is giving me a brain pain! Now lets see, tank big enough for the whole tractor.....around say, lets call it 200 gallons. Just the plating crystals for that amount of distilled water would be right at $14,000.00, not counting the nickel anodes......not gonna EVER happen at my place! LOL
Just did a google image search for "cow mower" and found that cow mowing image. Soon as I saw it, I knew it was for me! lol

Give me a few days. The article will have a link. Once set up, when you click the link and then purchase anything from them, then GTT will get a commission, which will help offset the expenses of running this site. GTT will be an affiliate with the plating company once it is all set up.

That's awesome Dan!...The electroplating and the fact that the site will get a commission! How does one set that up? That part looks great and BTW, did you make the rubber grip too?

The plating company has the affiliate thing already set up on their site. George just had to fill out an application & we're waiting to get acceptance. The rubber, in like new condition, believe it or not IS original!

Well, guess you'll be waiting a day or so longer. Got busy prepping the calf barn for winter & didn't get any shop time today. Likely none tomorrow either. Going after building supplies to tighten up the barn.

If I sell off the stock, I'm out of a job! And the very 1st thing I plated was half a deepwell socket, so I could easily see the difference. What a difference I might add!
I'll try to remember to take a pic of the socket tomorrow.
