    So a few years back a generous forum member here hooked me up with a rather large aluminum anodizing set up. Well life has gotten to busy for me and I will probably never get around to using it so here we go. This set up consists of a 2 level 3'x5'
    rolling steel cart that has had the top cut out to hold 6 5 to 7 gallon buckets that contain your chems and dye. It also has this awesome lexan top that covers the entire cart to prevent splashing or spills during movement. It also contains all the chems and dye to get rolling. You will need to provide a heat source such as an aquarium heater or similar and make a away to agitate the mixture. Plus a power supply. The directions can be found on you tube how to do it. So this isn't complete but it is most of the way there. The cart is industrial grade and is heavy. You will need to pick it up as I have a bad back and can't do it myself but I will help you load it but you will still probably need a friend. I moved it with a 4x8 utility trailer but you can get it in a full size truck as long as you do not have a tool box in it. All I ask is that it gets gone quick! I am out of work thanks to the virus and I need to get my shop cleaned out so I can start turning wrenches at the house to pay my bills. It is located in Fuquay Varina NC. My drive is very small so a large trailer will be impossible to turn around just a heads up. Just PM me and we will work out a time to make this happen but as I said I need it gone quick so I do not starve when my fat reserves run out. I will post pics tommorow.

    I would love to get this - would like to try anodizing some of the aluminum parts that I cast on weekends. Will send you a PM.
