Quick question for anyone with the knowledge... Want to remove finish off wedges to play a Raw finish... Got two with a darker finish.. A TM Rac with a smoke and an Adams Pugielli black... 3rd one is a chrome plated 60... Chrome probably bein the tricky but after some googlin' seems like a good ole coke bath overnight should hammer out the chrome..(?)... Someone far more knowledgable than me got anything for me?

You could leave the chrome wedge in Coke for forty days and forty nights and it wouldn't do anything.  The other two wedges the Coke trick might work.

Another found suggestion was oven cleaner for the chrome... Do you have a suggestion?

There are two types of finish you can remove at home: black oxide, and oil can.  Chrome, whether bright, black, gray, satin, etc, can not be removed unless you want to mess around with strong acid.  Best to find a pro.

Heed the advise already given!
If you wish to "blacken" chrome you can remove the head and place it in a self cleaning oven while the self clean cycle is on.
The high heat will blacken the chrome just look at the chrome plated over racks.
