Well, tried searching for electrolysis, no results. tried searching for copper plating, and copper gets ignored.. so, enter new topic here.
I recently have been doing some electrolysis projects. In my research, I stumbled across copper plating.
this is a fairly simple proccess, on a school science project level.
now what I was originaly thinking, was I have this big ole turkey fryer, aluminum of course. I bought it to make my still out of originaly, came with a nice big propane burner etc as well. this was before I discovered the complications in making aluminum barely acceptable, and decided it best not to use it.
Now copper plating onto aluminum is a little more complicated, altho it can be done. I may tempt it in the future. However for now, I belive it would be simpler to use a larger metal container. It also opens up possibilities for using other things that can be reliably plated with copper. I have to look into it a bit further, altho maybe simply experimenting with it to see the results would be my best bet.
anyways, long storey short, has anyone tried or used electrolysis to copper plate anything? Has any one used or experimented with it for thier stills?
Im pretty sure it would work rather well, especialy since the object/pieces would be nicely sealed in a solid layer of copper...
