      Happy with the purchase

      I've have my "Chrome Edition" for several months now and I'm very pleased with it. Plating is easy, tech/customer service is great, & shipping was fast. I have saved lots of money gold plating my own pieces. Looking for to upgrading to a couple Pro Lab stations. A word to the wise: Make sure your substrate is immaculate for best results. The system is a bit pricey so that the only reason I couldn't give 5 stars.
