I have been using the pen plater for 5 years now, only I use my regular
rectifier (25amp), not their midas total outfit. Many manufacuters use
this system for quick plating jobs so as not to have to mask off the
complete piece. I simply turn my rectifier to appx. 4 volts, and after
having electrocleaned the piece and rinsed and steamed, plate carefully.
By the way, one must purchase the actual pen plating solution, as this is a
concentrate, different from the rhodium bath.
In all actuallity, I honestly feel that the full rhodium bath does do a
better job. But the time saving is more than worth it.
