Hey guys I just wanted to let y'all know that I am going to be starting a little anodizing hobby. My buddy bought the whole system a year ago and never got motivated to use it, so I bought it from him. I'm fairly new to this so I'm going to try it out on some spare aluminum parts I have. If all goes well I'll be offering my service to you guys. I'm not going to charge crazy prices like a lot of anodizing companies. I'm thinking $20 to $40 depending on size of part or reel. Small parts I'll do for cheaper. If you have a frame or any other aluminum parts you want the color changed this would be it. Or even if you have a frame or spool that's all scratches up you can get it restored

Good luck with your project. Red anodised spools should be popular. Looking forward to seeing some of your work.

Will do guys. Should be interesting. The red spool idea sounds like it might be a hit. Those red spools are expensive

Whenever you're ready, I have a red Jigmaster spool that could use your services!   Smiley

Do you also have the ability to take off the previous coating?  I.E., I have a scratched up Slammer (USA made) but they're getting harder to find parts for, could you blast off the current black housing/bail arm/etc. and redo it in black?
