I've heard of people using a door-bell transformer for plating, but I
don't know the perticulars.
Yeah, me again; g’day. You’d need a rectifier as well as a
transformer; you must have DC current for plating, but a transformer
will only give AC (at 60cps in your country) Even a dry battery
would work, but a car battery would give too high a voltage for most
plating. However, a battery charger is excellent, especially one
with a built-in ammeter. That is the current thinking at my ohm. Don’t
be resistant to it.
