Just wondered if you can buy caustic acid/solution from the DIY shops? as I need to get the black ano colour off on one of my items to bare metal silver colour.

Go to the supermarket and look at the bottles of Mr Muscle sink and plughole unblocker and the like. Lots of them are, essentially, solutions of caustic soda.

:oops: Sorry Guy, always meant to reply. I used an industrial caustic solution. But when I got round to replying I was going to mention an old thread that suggested a good method. I'll try to find it.
