You will need a vacuum chamber and pump, a source to provide enough current to heat a metal to evaporation, and something to hold the evaporating metals. Tungsten wire baskets or boats are commonly used.
Ok so I have an odd question. I have been trying outs Zink plating instead of copper to see how it behaves and so far it is plating to my graphite rod but it is a dull grey color. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
