example usage 1

The nib on the left is our Fibre Nib and the one on the right is our Fine Fibre Nib. Each kit includes two fibre nibs specifically designed and manufactured for exclusive use with our plating pens. These nibs are the only ones you should use with our Rhodium Pen Plating Solution, but they can be used with our other pen plating solutions as well.  The Fine Fibre Nib has been specifically developed for rhodium plating claw and pave settings. The conduction band on the Fine Fibre Nib ensures good conductivity, optimum plating performance and another advantage of the fine nib is that it absorbs less plating solution and is therefore more economic to use. For illustrated instructions on how to use the Battery Plating Pen, please click HERE for our Electroplating Manual. If you live outside the UK and EU, you could replace the rhodium pen plating solution with our Palladium Pen Plating Solution which can be shipped internationally.

One of the unique features of our portable plating pen is that it can be completely disassembled for thourough cleaning and for swapping pen electrodes. The kit includes a mini allen key which loosens the grub nut on the side of the titanium elecrode holder, releasing the platinum pen electrode. Both the electrode holder and the electrode can then be thoroughly cleaned, avoiding cross contamination between pen plating solutions and possible corrosion over time whilst the pen is in storage.

The ultra fine fibre nib makes precision rhodium plating of claw settings much more accurate and straightforward.

The batteries are easy to replace, so you don’t have to throw away the unit when the batteries run out and buy a whole new kit. Please use 3 x AA batteries (high quality long life). When inserting your batteries make sure the end of the battery with the small contact goes in first (positive) with the large contact (negative) pressing up against the spring contact.
