Exclamation Anodizing

All ideas of anodizing should be placed here, and we can see what we can do. Hopefully we can get the set up going by next meeting to try some stuff. Let the fun begin!

"12V 2A DC power supply"

There we have it! Mike, do you happen to have one of these? That would make the set up just a matter of some wire and lead. Chuck has a multimeter that he is donating to the cause.

"Anodising alone gives a clear layer and it can be left as is if you are
only doing it to protect the piece."

It looks like we were also correct about this.

Here are the materials and names of people who have the items. This way we can find out what we need to purchase. Post if you have any of the red items, those are the ones I don't know about.

Two containers:
The first should be large enough to accommodate the part you wish to anodise so that it
can be completely submerged with clearance so it does not touch the sides. The second
should be larger than the first, with a sealable lid
---Chuck
Sulphuric Acid, diluted to 10% -15% strength
Lead flashing

12V 2A DC power supply
A multimeter which can read Ampere
---Chuck
A length of 6A mains cable.
Distilled or deionised water, lots of. (10L should get you started)
Pure aluminium rod or titanium
---Mike Roux
Anodising Dye of your colour choice.
Caustic soda
Tooth brush
---Me
Thermometer
---Me, but I am sure you guys will have a better one
Latex gloves for handling your work
Chemical gloves for handling Acid

Respirator
---Someone

We'll get everything together Marshall. Then you can create your pen. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.
