These posts have been reshaped on a grinder, and the chrome has flaked in several areas. They need to be stripped. I know it can be done using sodium hydroxide and an electric current, but that produces a nasty solution containing hexavalent chromium. I was hoping that simply soaking them in lye might loosen the chrome without actually dissolving it into solution. Oh well, maybe I'll just send them out while I work on other parts of the project.
