Fill cap cover was anodized black. Aluminum anodized bolt probe and end cap(was suppose to be red but turned out more like an orange). The handle is made from brass. I will be replacing the handle with aluminum anodized handle.

Thanks for the compliment. I actually did it myself. I am trying to gear up towards having a small anodizing line. Little by little I add some things. It is fun to do but to get the right colour is going to take some trial and error type experience. As you can see the intent for the end cap was red but it turned out orange.

Using "Rit" dye. It is amazing at how the surface becomes so much harder after anodizing. Here is the bolt that has been anodized. The next is the receiver.

Looks good to me. 8)

Any chance of a basic run down of the process?

As a person will be working with sulphuric acid...which can be dangerous. I have provided an address that will get you to the site where I got all my information.

Interesting. Notice the fellow is anodizing by "time" rather than watching the current draw...mind sharing which you're doing?

I am just watching the reaction. Not measuring any current draw. Once the reaction seems to stop I figure it is fully anodized. There will be almost like a smoking in the solution off of the cathode. The Anode(or anodized part will turn yellowish )

Alrighty then. :)

Now that it's warming up outside, this is something I REALLY need to have a go at.

Thanks,

Very nice work!

Please do a tutorial for us gearheads

Anodized ally will not conduct electricity. So waiting until the reaction stops must be right!
Very i interested in adding this to my shop!
