The surface residual stresses in 1mm thick nickel electrodeposits obtained from four types of nickel sulphamate baths at 40 to 60$^{circ}C$ and 5 to 25 amps./$dm^2$ were measured by a X-ray method. An increase in nickel chloride concentration in the bath tends to increase tensile residual stresses in the deposits. Addition of no chloride or little chloride in the baths gave rise to little residual stresses or even compressive stresses in the deposits. The residual stresses in most specimens did not exceed 80 MPa and showed minimum in the specimens obtained at 50$^{circ}C$.
