I need to make a couple dozen .940" aluminum cylinders .940" long,
6061-T6 and coat them with a reasonably durable flat black (or very
dark) finish. They need to withstand a fair amount of handling and
joggling around (student lab use) without chipping so flat black paint
is just not tough enough. I will put a nice chamfer on the edges to cut
down on the chips.
How about anodizing? I can put a small hole for hanging through the axis
to hang them. Our model shop has a elaborate shop built anodizing setup
that is non functional. Since I need some parts anodized, I suppose I'm
tapped for trouble shooting it. I need some background on how/what
before I dive in. They guy that built it is not really available.
I'm striking out with google, I get a lot of discussion, very little on
a clean writeup of how to do it. I do get a lot of leads that point to
is the "pay me $25 for my book"
