I remember a thread I think TeeBee about custom polish and anodizing that include the guy in Oregon or Washington that does the work

I have a friend inquiring about this sort of work

I have resisted getting all the stuff to do anodizing my self.... BUT some day I do intend to play as the set up is rather simple and with good polishing and dyes can create some stunning effects


any how... my searches have been tedious and ineffective.... I am sure from July 2017 until now one of the members had a few beautiful polished and anodized engines where he mentioned the craftsman who did them

He does good work. I have added grooves to a thick tapered cylinder. I see he calls the narrow neck crankcases leakers and normally doesn’t work on them.

It is curious. Almost all of people mix up anodizing with dyeing of aluminum.
First is a process that create a hard , stable and continuous layer of Al oxide on metal surface. It is transparent and reproduces finish condition of metal (polish or mate). Secound one dye aluminum with translucide colours due a dye introducing in surface porousity of anodized layer , followed with sealing of these porous in water bath at 100•C.
Thereoff if we want talk about put colour on a crankcase p.e. is better and correct make mention of dyening that can be made in a previous anodized part or not.

Other personal concern about aluminum buffing/polish is: anodic layer will be removed or not due, almost ever, an abrasive compound (arm & hammer, mother paste, buffing compund ...) is used to make surface shine or dry blasted to make surface matte. Then... we would be removing a prottetive previous condition to let our engines bright?

I think everybody in this group understand the anodizing process, the aluminum can't be dyed unless its anodized and almost all anodized aluminum is dyed, so for many it's one and the same. I'm sure the general public is ignorant of the process, just like they are of our toys.
