A few weeks back the nice chap next door found a better Zinc platers. I decided to go for it big style last week and dropped off every single nut, bolt and washer I could find and get them plated, as it was all one price. Ideal for al sorts of things as it gives them a rust proof coating and makes things cleaner and simpler when it comes to maintenance in the future.
The lighter coloured ones are from the old platers and they just don’t look as good, even though mechanically they will be 100% as good. I should have another batch of parts to go soon, so if your local and need stuff zinc plated let me know.
