    Anodizing

    Wondering if anyone has a good referral for an anodizing place here in Calgary. I have a few aluminum bits on a project car i need refinished. Any referrals or reviews would be appreciated!

    Erik - I haven't had anything done by them, but many moons ago, someone told me about Alanco in Okotoks. You now know as much as I do. I couldn't find a website, just a phone # 403-938-4058

    Anodizing is a challenge because it's part art, part science. Most places are set up to do "production" anodizing for parts manufacturing, as opposed to odd-jobs. The other reason why it's tough to find a shop to do stuff is that due to the nature of the chemicals and acids used in prepping, your parts can get damaged, so lots of shops won't want to take on that risk. So just a heads up that you may have to be persistent, but report back on what you find.
