Anodizing?

Postby Ramius-II » Mon Feb 07, 2011 8:39 am

Hi All! :D
Does any know of a place that will black anodize a 4 mm aluminum tube about 2.5" long? What is the most important is the inside of the tube for it is for optics.

Thanks in advance, Ed
Just one more wire!

Can be quite difficult to get anodizing done in small quantities. The type of aluminium affects the process, so a lot of companies don't want to know.

You could try a company that does chromium plating, many also offer anodizing. The other alternative is to have a go yourself.
