"Anodizing Adventure"

Hello all,
I've had this Ti Drive sitting around waiting for some special attention.
So while I was anodizing a few Ti Mini Cubes I decided to do a reverse anodize on it.
The process for this involves the negative lead (cathode) being attached to the ferrule on a paintbrush while the positive lead (anode) is attached to the work piece.
Wetting the brush with the electrolyte, and the power supply voltage at the desired setting you brush the part.
Different spectrum colors are obtained by the length of time the brush is left in one location.
Note that I also added a glow powder epoxy mixture to the slot near the lanyard hole.
Thanks for looking, Kenn
This one has been spoken for...:)

Nice one!!! Are you going to do something like this to your Ti handled knives? Gary :)

Thanks Gary,
I suppose I could if someone were to ask for it;)

That looks so neat Kenny! you should call it "Camo Anodizing" cool name huh ;)

Thanks Wes,
I won't say how many times I jolted myself with 105 volts DC...;)
You'd think I would've learned on your JDR, and put on some rubber gloves this time....hehehe

Wes said...

HAHA! whats Anodizing without a little voltage running through ya ;)
i have combined the above two name to now call it "Camodizing" lol

So have you picked up the blades yet Kenny? if so how do they look?

"Camodizing" good term!

Looking forward to seeing this on more of Kenn's Ti items.

It looks great. It will look great with Ti Mini Cube!

Thanks Kenn!

Hi guys,
Thanks for the wonderful comments.
Wes, I still haven't picked up the Blades.
Our schedules haven't synced up yet for it to be convenient.
John, I hope to pull off anodizing a Ti Mini to match the Drive.
