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.
Nickel, Zinc & Electroforming Copper 20 Litre Kit
$1,026.00 Inc Gst
Complete 20 Litre TRIPLE Nickel, Zinc & Electroforming Copper Kit which includes all items necessary to successfully conduct your own plating in all three options. This kit contains plating chemicals which are mixed with water to create 20 litre plating baths in Nickel, Zinc and Copper (copper electroplate is the chemical required in the electroforming process). It allows the user to Electroform the items in Copper before plating them in a desirable lustrous Nickel finish or in a desirable Zinc finish. Once the item has the Nickel plate applied it could be left as is or even be Gold Plated, (see JANE GOLD PLATING KITS in ELECTROPLATING KITS on our HOME page for more information). It also includes a laboratory type Power Supply. See the full list of Kit contents and Nickel, Zinc & Electroforming Copper Plating information in the “ELECTROPLATING KITS” category on the home page.
Electroforming is the process of controlling the metal deposit from an anode metal, through the electrolyte solution, onto an electroconductive surface. Basically, a skin of metal is built up, over the applied Conductive Paint, into a rigid structure. This Triple Kit contains various items including items specific for Nickel and Zinc plating and Electroforming. (i.e) Conductive Paint for applying to non-conductive surfaces and Copper plating chemicals for applying the base metal to the conductive paint. It also includes the Antiquing Patina solution to assist in producing the ultimate patinaed look and the Clear Shield – Clear Thermoplastic Acrylic Lacquer to lock in the desired look, seal and protect the finished items.
NOTE: Constant movement (not air) inside the plating bath is essential, it enables the chemical to mix and assists with distributing the metal irons around the electroplating bath more efficiently. Jane Kits has a product called an Agitator, which is a small impeller type pump, tested to survive inside the plating chemicals. It is strongly recommended to add an “AGITATOR” to this Kit. They can be found in the “PLATING SUPPLIES” category on our HOME page.
NOTE: The only items you need to supply are a suitable plating container and water to mix your plating chemicals with.
Use only deionised, demineralised, distilled or rain water for mixing with plating chemicals. Do not use tap water!

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.
