I've got some free time on my hands now.
My non-expert opinion is that this process sounds fairly safe as long as you handle the sulfuric acid properly. That stuff can be pretty nasty and can do real damage if you aren't careful. Also, once you're done you'll need to properly dispose of the sulfuric acid which can be a bit tricky. Here are two links that provide some recommendations on how to do this:a66toy wrote:This link is for anodizing. With the chemicals involved, is it for me to do or should this be one of the things that should be sent out.
I just looked it up, steel and stainless steel can not be anodized. The process baths used to anodize aluminum would attack and dissolve steel parts..... I learned something today.MaineVette wrote:This process sounds pretty easy and I wonder if it would actually work as intended. Whereas the dye is a waterborne product I wonder if the color would fade or wash away over time. Also, is it even possible to anodize steel? I thought it was a process used specifically on aluminum surfaces.
