Saw this today

http://www.mutr.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=601

They are selling a cheap small scale titanium home anodizing kit for only £4.24 ($8.50US €6.30Euro)

Probably big enough to anodize your own ti bolts, seat clamps, QRs nuts and other small parts, perhaps even a whole rear mech !?

It quite a good site for those into tuning/making parts as it carries stuff like carbon fibre woven cloth, polymorph, nylon screws, Kevlar woven fabric and many other strange and wonderful things.

Might be of use to someone here.

does the colour come from the fizzy drink you have to use? :)

Tango components :)

Not sure ?

The reason they call it a titanium anodizing kit is that it is aimed at folk who make titanium jewelry - so maybe it works fine with alloys also ?
