I have seen a few videos showing a blacksmith making bottle openers from open end wrenches so I bought a handful at a garage sale. Some are chrome or nickel plated and some are not plated. How safe (unsafe ?) is it to burn the plating off. Is there a safe way to dissolve it off. I don't want to mess around with muriatic, sulfuric, nitric, etc, etc Or should I just use the plated ones to add ballast to my toolbox ?
