I anodized a part I milled for my boat.
Not overly difficult.
Just some sulfuric acid and a battery charger essentially.
Here is is raw and brushed:
Any after anodizing to match the rest of the boat hardware:
Nice! Nothing like that first start after a rebuild!
Some jackass stole my old sign at work so I made a new one:
Cut the blade out and then put another piece behind it so it's got some depth.
Copper patina on both pieces.
Love swag's stuff.
I remember when he started out on the jeep forums and no one though it would go anywhere and here he is 10, 15? years later still cranking out cool shit.
That little thing should do 95% of the jobs you'd need a bandsaw for, how often does anyone cut bigger than 4x4 stock anyway?

And it can't come soon enough lol.
I'm sure everyone that does any big projects knows it comes in waves, sometimes it's fun and sometimes it's just a slog to the finish. I'm currently slogging through it. Been doing that siding by myself for about 3 weeks now and man I'm ready for that...
