im now offering type II anodizing. i think the easiest way to do things would be to use this thread to get together groups of folks who want something anodized. i can do almost any color they make dye for (if i have the dye or it can be ordered). individual orders would be too expensive b/c of the time involved in setup. if your willing to pay a higher price im sure we could work something out though. this is not a support thread for modwerx so please keep it on topic. if you have an questions about orders or anything else relating to the shop feel free to send me a pm or an email through the shop. :) any questions about the anodizing service can be posted here or you can send me either a pm or an email.

price will most likely depend on lot size and setup time but ill be fair either way.

no effects are offered at this time b/c i need to practice more. ;)

all colors shown in pic can be lightened if needed. these samples were made with the full 15min soak time and can be taken out sooner for a lighter color.

any polishing/finishing should be taken care of before anything is shipped to me.

Colors on hand:

Black HBL
Fast Blue
Violet DS
Fluorescent Pink
Electric Blue
Turquoise
Orange 3A
Deep Red
Yellow 4A
Green AEN
Blue 4A
Violet 3D


Colors offered:

Grey NLN
Gold S
Teal
Turquoise
Red Bordeaux
Olive Drab
Orange 2B
Yellow 3GL
Golden Orange
Copper BF
Brown GL
Grey BL
Bronze
Brown BL

black, blue 4a, and clear(all scotchbrite or brushed finish)


Green AEN and orange 3A(originally black, these were stripped and repolished)

Nice!
Are you thinking of doing these large batches in the same colors for people wanting that color, or everyone's individual hosts different colors at the same time?
I have a couple that I think would look cool if they were Color coded
445nm = Turquoise 635nm = Red Etc. Etc.
Need a Green Anodize for the 532nm. though I dont know what the OD Green would look like.

Very cool! This is really awesome. Just a question, for asking's sake, can you isolate sections from being anodized? Like doing a dual-color?

Wow, those are just awesome. I'd love to see some of the Phobos or Eghemus (did I come close to spelling that right?) hosts in these colors. VERY, VERY COOL!

u can strip anodizing using lye or caustic soda mixed with water. dip and wait a few seconds then rinse. since anodizing is an electrical insulator you have to check for continuity to see if its all been removed. if you do it enough you can tell from the way the metal looks when it comes out of the stripper. ;)

Nice!

colors can be done individually after the anodizing and before sealing. dye only adds color and has no importance over the rest of the process. for 532 color likeness you may want to try green AEN with a light soak in dye instead of a full soak. any color can be lightened simply by removing the part from the dye earlier.
