This slimline 5 Amp power supply provides up to 80W of power, still plenty of grunt for many smaller Electroplating Kits. It is an ideal power supply for our 4 or 10 Litre size Electroplating and Electroforming Kits. It is also an ideal alternative for our Gold Plating Kits. (NOTE; If you are purchasing a 20 Litre Kit or larger, please consider the upgraded 40 Amp Power Supply. This will ensure you have enough current (amps) available).
This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. This allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is not a feature of our 15 Amp power supply. Simply select your power range, then adjust the controls to obtain your desired outputs. It has a variable output and current from 0 to 5A. Available are 0-16V @ 0-5A, 0-27VDC @ 0-3A, and 0-36V @ 0-2.2A. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays. Output is provided via banana sockets which will accept insulated banana plugs. Includes banana to alligator clamp leads. Incredibly compact in size and light, weighing only 1 kg.
The amount of current (amps) required for electroplating is determined by the total amount of surface area that is in the plating bath. Larger Kit sizes (eg. 20 litres and above) allow more surface area to be plated at one time and therefore more current (amps) are required. This high powered dual controlled switchmode power supply will deliver up to 40 amps which is ideal for our larger Kits. This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. It has a variable output voltage from 1 to 15VDC and variable current from 0 to 40A. It features overload, short circuit, over temperature and tracking over voltage protected. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays and incorporates an intelligent fan control program that checks the fan at power on and adapts the right speed to ensure a quiet and efficient operation. The maximum current output is 40 amperes continuous. Incredibly light, weighing only 2.9Kgs. Includes mains power cable and positive and negative power cables.
JPK Aqualac 250 ml
$18.00 Inc Gst
You receive 250 ml bottle of JPK Aqualac, which is a clear copolymerized acrylic, water-based lacquer used over metal parts to yield a corrosion and scuff resistant finish. It is predominantly used in the final water dip following the application of Jane Kits Black Zinc chromate. This process will eliminate iridescence and can also be introduced across other Jane Kits – Gold Bright, Blue Dip and Olive Drab chromates if desired.
It can also be used as a final clear finish over bright nickel, chromium, brass, zinc plate and zinc diecast. The film is very tenacious and will withstand swaging and cold forming. However, for a more advanced clear protective metal coating Jane Kits Clear Shield is a more suitable option. See our website for more details regarding Clear Shield.
JPK Aqualac is water based and contains no solvents, it is non-flammable and produces no polluting fumes and fire hazards are eliminated. The final finish is stable to light and heat. The finish will also resist corrosive and weathering atmospheres.
The mixing ratio is between 10% – 30% with water. (i.e. 100ml to 300ml Aqualac per 1 ltr water). The JPK Aqualac rinse bath should be run at a temperature between 21 to 49 degrees Celsius. The process is applied by simply dipping the part into the mixed working solution. The part is introduced into the working solution wet, straight after the previous water rinse bath. Move the part around for 10 seconds, remove and shake excess from the part but do not touch it, simply hang to completely dry. Ensure there are no excessive gathering of coating during drying. A periodic shake may be required during this drying process.

The Jane Kits story began when John, a vintage motorbike restorer realised that it would be much more convenient and economical if he was able to plate his own parts in the home workshop. So John decided to source and create his own plating kit and hence Jane Kits was born. John went on to receive numerous awards for his meticulously restored bikes with parts plated using his ingenious new kit.
