What does it take to anodize? Is an easy Do It Yourself project?

Check out this forum. It seems more complicated and expensive than something like parkerizing.

No, it is not simple.

You can't set-up a new chromic acid line anymore. Dang EPA, that was the best anodizing process.

With some time and money I could probably set-up a simple boric-sulfuric acid anodizing line using boiling DI water as a sealant.

Don't forget to add shredded aluminum foil to the new tank before you try anodizing any parts. That is, unless you WANT to see a part that looks like a 200-pound dog chewed on it.
