WOW after many years owning a computer it never hit home to seek
and ideas from like minded people until I had a rhodium
plating challenge which I will elaborate on later.
My name is Ben, Im a 32yo male married with 3 boys 3 6 8. Been
working from home for approx 10 years when the retailer I was
working for decided to use a lessor priced contractor. Still with
jobs to keep me going from my private customers though. After a few
months I answered an ad looking for a contract jeweller which I
applied for and got, but it was instore. I had to think long and
hard as being home for so many years was comfortable. I took up the
position on terms which was accepted and boy was I homesick, I
couldnt even socialise as I hadnt for so long. But 1 year on I have
to say I love it.
Anyway back to my rhodium.
I plated this ring today 3 times and each time several spots
appeared which seemed to be in the same place, so my conclusion was
as it was a casted piece tiny perosity in the locations would
prevent any adhesian.
My dilema is that I need a better way to strip rhodium other than
emery by hand also another job requires delicate masking, so I do
not want to do it with fear of bleading so I need help.
