best way is go to a chromeplate shop and have the parts dechromed electrolitic. another way to have (only)the chrome removed is a plastic tub with soda ,put the part in,let a batterychargercurrent go through the part (+)towards a piece of metal connected to (-),this strips off the chrome.
If you want to take off both chrom, nickel and copper,use sulpuric acid(battery liquid)instead of soda,be very carefull ,use glasses ,gloves,and don t let in too long or your part will disappear!!warning:if you use last method on brazed parts,the brazing can also be weakened..,hope this gives you some idea.

Rein, is that baking soda? and what part soda verses what part water? also, do you mean connect both leads - and + to each end of the submerged part and then turn on the battery charger?
Thanks Pa
