Re: HOW TO ** Remove Anodization **

I wanted to play too so gave this a try. Worked like magic. Thanks for the tutorial!

Re: HOW TO ** Remove Anodization **

I would like to bump this thread. I have been wanting to try this for a long time.

I did it exactly as described on page 1 of the thread. As soon as the part hit the mixture, the anodizing started coming off. I mean, instantaneous. (Did I add too much lye?)

The results are terrific!

Just take all necessary precautions and it’s quite easy. Thank you deme.


As long as I'm here, it doesn't matter where 'here' is.

yeah sounds like the solution may have been a little "hot" .. its always easier to add more Lye when doing a part. To much can damage a part if not watched. A buddy of mine did it and put to much lye and left the part in for a min or 2, to long and the threads were shot.

lets see some pics!!!
