It must be project season because I ran out of stock on most of the pre-cut radius Tial flange that I had for sale. After sitting in my inventory for over a year selling 1 every 3 months a most, they’re all gone under the last 6 weeks!
I am still a bit surprised of their recent popularity, but I just started a batch of 90 of them so I will have your project covered for a while! I will be stocking more of the popular size. You can see the size available here.
So about a month ago I started to make some key chain and wasn’t expecting them to be such a hit. I received a lot of request for custom one!
It’s a shame that I don’t get to use my anodizing line more, let alone the fact that I barely use any color except the black. These little bugger took care of that and I even added a really nice purple dye to my tank.
With these new little pieces to do I felt it was time to invest in a titanium fixture that could hold more parts and be much faster to setup. China to the rescue, I ordered these disc that now allow me to mount 30 pieces per rack, or as much as my power supply can handle on a single batch. The trick with a racking like these is the surfaces area goes up a lot and you got to account for it by pushing more amps. As more amps puts out more heat into the tank, the maximum parts quantity that can be run could be affected by that factor.
I also ordered that other style of disc that can be adjusted in height to fit a good range of parts. Anodizing is pretty fun but it is also time consuming. The more you can make in a batch and how fast you can get your parts ready to be anodized is the only place where you can invest to save time.
I plan to make some in-depth video of my anodizing line and process pretty soon. These will be posted here on my post section!
