Two things work well for me. Done on different days.
3 sets chins AMRAP (long rest periods)

2 to 3 sets of standing barbell curls in the 6-8 rep range, close to failure, followed immediately by negative chins to failure (old Nautilus stuff). (long rest periods)

There's an assumption here you can do at least 8, preferably more than 10, very good chin-ups. Smooth up, pause, smooth down, pause. No momentum, no assist from body english.
Until I read your post just now, I had completely forgotten about the barbell curl followed by negative chins to failure protocol. My pops suggested I do that exact superset back in the early 90's. He suggested 2 seconds up and 4 seconds down for the barbell curls and slow negatives on the negative chins. Can confirm that protocol worked for increasing my arm size.

Most Nautilus pre-exhaustion didn't work well for me. The curls/chins and extensions/dips always did. Would occasionally do chin/curl/negative chin.

For this type of work, longer time between sets, allowing heavier weights, also worked better than short rest.
