Nicad or Zinc platers in Houston
« on: June 01, 2019, 19:40:14 »
Hello,
Does anyone know any company that does nicad or zinc plating in Houston?
I want to send of all my nuts and bolts and other items for plating locally if possible? Anyone know rough cost per pound?

Thanks,
Maistran.

Hi Maistran,

Hope all is going well!

Give Gus a call at Beverley Hill Motors  at 713 977-9612.

I think he has a couple of plating companies that he works with.  I am sure he would share his experience.

The hard part about finding a Zinc plater is most shops are set up to do industrial work.  They want new clean metal parts to plate and don't want to deal with our small quantity fussy stuff.  I did a quick Google search and virtually everyone listed is an industrial plater.  There is however a custom chrome shop that looks like it would be up our alley.  I would call them and see who they might know to do some zinc work.
