Brush Plating Tools

Magic Wand Brush Plater

This is the major tool used for most items like car trim and replating silver trays, etc. Used with gold, silver, copper, nickel and all other solutions with the exception of Chrome.   It has a one inch wide plating surface and comes with 5 sleeves, so no cotton is used with this tool.  The design of the Dalmar Magic Wand allows you to get into corners, between grill bars and it is the only wand made that will plate spokes on spoke wheels. Round anodes or  rods on wands will not get into the small sections on spoke wheels. Our wand will. Also a round rod can't get into square corners. The end can be bent to fit different applications. Comes with 5 sleeves.
