Starting at LL7, my dad and I decided we wanted to be able to anodize our own guns to save all the money we had been spending at other companies recently and that's how our year long, on-going adventure started. We started with a shipping container we had on our property for storage.
So we spent a while cleaning our all of our random tools and junk that accumulated in it over several years. Our original plan was to do the bare minimum so we could simply do the ano's that we were wanting to do. Of course we can't ever do simple projects so the next thing we knew we were framing and insulating a large section of the container
Then we decided to get the special tanks large enough to hold whatever part we would need. That trend continues with us getting as nice of equipment as we can reasonably find and we spend and work on this shop on and off for the next year. Here we are tired of pouring money into a pit and working on what feels like we're getting no where when we realize we can see the light at the end of the tunnel
We all of a sudden realize that we're not exactly where we want to be but we could start moving in chemicals, setting up our tanks and were very near being able to anodize a part. That kicked us into overdrive and we were working on getting to that point as quickly as possible, and we finally got there around 2 months from that point. I would like to note at this point we've sold roughly half a dozen markers to get to where we are. All of which were our main reason for starting this project
This whole shop came together over time as we were putting in money as we saved it, and we sold stuff as we could to speed it along, but eventually we're to the point we're at today. Taking a limited amount of business and making plans to improve our finish and turn around time. It's been a long slow year but I'm happy we're finally here.
Then last but not least here's a few pieces we've done up to this point!
