Was passivated cadmium plating for chassis ever popular in the US? Certainly was over here.....

Cad plating was used in some military and commercial gear. I don't know if I'd call it popular, but it certainly wasn't uncommon.

I believe 'cad plate and passivate' is no longer legal in the EU....

G3RZP - The electroplating, by J. Poyner, Workshop Practice Series Number 11 finally arrived from Barnes & Noble. It would have been quicker and less costly if I had ordered it directly from the U.K. Others in the series will be ordered direct.

Heathkit used Copper plated chassis in their AT1 transmitter and AR3.receiver. I could be
wrong but I also believe the Heathkit DX-100 chassis's were also copper plated.

Mike,

Just wanted to let you know the Electric Radio was excellent. For those that are interested it is in the Jan 2019 volumne 356 of ER, titled Rebuilding a Heathkit HW-101 from Scratch. A bit of good information for those that are looking to return a HeathKit to almost new condition.
Well done Mike.
