I do not anodize aluminium by myself, but I am highly interested in anodizing titanium.

All black parts were anodized by:

Swag!

I know we've spoken last week about the factory that anodizes parts for you. And that the original measurements of the part stay the same. Because first they corrode the surface and then anodizing adds the same amount of material that the corroding has robbed.

But I didn't realize how cool the results look!

Oh yes, as said, that is professional work :D

But I think that shinyness can be beaten...by the brilliance of anodized titanium 8)
