I know it may be trade secret, however, how do you mask? surely you are not freehanding the Cooks Brothers logo?

Stripping, polishing and anodizing are all gainable skills - the detail parts are the most envied and hidden. Help us amateurs out :)

I am now looking at buying a similar anodizing kit.


Steve, did you buy a ready made kit (like the ones on ebay) or just
assemble the parts ?
I had a mad couple of hours a while back and was tempted but there
was talk of lots of nasty chemicals/fumes.

Wasn't aware you could do it in the kitchen !!

Getting tempted myself.

Ha! I was just about to ask the same question.

Presumably if your original part has a deep scratch on it such as that found at the end of a crank arm, there's not much u can do about it and polishing won't get that out?

I can hardly believe how effin cool this is. :shock: I alwys thought anodizing as something waaaaaay beyond a do-it-yourselfer.

I am so doing this. I have many ratty, old, mismatched, sun-faded, scratched parts.

I'm just itching to start stripping, polishing, and home brew anodizing them.
