Anodising services?

I am in need of anodising some aluminium components. Anyone know any good quality outfits that do anodising via post without charging silly money?

Alternatively, Im in Bristol. Anyone know any local conpanies?

I have used a company near me in London who were good but had a 75 minimum charge. That drove me to going DIY. It really is a straight forward process. All you need is acid (drain cleaner from B & Q or battery acid) a bit of old lead flashing and a power supply (some but not all battery chargers are suitable. You can buy dye on e-bay for very little. Making sure that you have a good connection with the part is the only difficult bit.


Sorry that is not a response to your question.

A few pics of my attempts below

Thanks for the reply.

I'd love to go the DIY route but as this is for work I think they would go nuts if I started buying battery acid

Set yourself up as a supplier to the company and do it in your spare time at home to make a bit on the side

Can't do this unless you supply others too, this was being used as a way for companies to force staff into doing overtime outside reasonable limits so the govt cracked down on it.





Report your local potholes, it actually works!
