Well, talked to my buddy the welder last evening - it is going good and then he says - we can just ship them to their anodizer with all the other stuff they continually send there

looks like i won't be anodizing myself, he is right, I'm doing enough. Once all the aluminum is done for the manifold - off to the anodizing shop they will go, but first - i'll polish it all up so it looks good after anodizing and dying.

Dust,

I also thought about a home brew anodizing kit. I've decided it is to much headache for the small amount of parts I would be doing.

Your friend is right we (airplane builders) have enough going on already.

Somewhere in the back of my rapidly diminishing mind, there is a vague memory of certain types of anodizing possibly causing embrittlement, or some other bad guy. Better check before anodizing anything structural or that upon which you have to depend

Actually, alodining and anodizing are quite similar, doubt there is much difference in strength loss. But I'll check it out.

Yeah - checked it out already - 30 - 40 % strength reduction. I'll probably alodyne and powder coat
