Help

okay i want to anodize. I got the tanks acid and everything, So first the parts get stripped and stuff


So do i hook the battery charger up to the dye bucket and the acid bucket ?

and also what should i have the battery charger set to?

i want to anno guns and barrels etc. for now im going to try this on a barrel do i need to strip the inside and outside? and do i want to get dye in the inside of the barrel? and regardless do i have to polish out the inside of the barrel and how do i do this?


if someone who is already annodizing answer this all that would be greatly apperciated or if you guys could make like a video from start to finish like you stripping to the end that would be greatly apperciated.

You have a long way to go in your anodizing education.
There is no way to explain how to do it in a simple video or on this forum.
Get a general concept here: http://www.caswellplating.com/kits/lcd_ano.pdf
and here: http://www.focuser.com/atm/anodize/anodize.html

Plan on investing at least $500 in a simple aparatus. A battery charger is a poor way to go, but will get you started doing one part at a time. For anodizing entire PB guns, you'll need one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-Agilent-Varia...item3a5b032c82 To really do entire guns (all the parts, all at once), plan on investing $3000 or more.

If you're really serious, buy an instruction manual: https://www.caswellplating.com/manual/

Buy your dyes and chemicals here: http://www.caswellplating.com/kits/anodizedye.htm and here: http://www.caswellplating.com/kits/aluminum.htm

After you've learned how, and you have begun to set up your system, join the Caswell forum: http://forum.caswellplating.com/anodizing-questions/ You'll want to experiment on scrap peices befor you ever do a real part... it won't happen the first couple of times. There is a huge learning curve.
