Hi RodrigoHi Guys!
Well, my first head went bad, as holes were out of measure, so after starting another, i decided to make a carrier stop, and it worked well, now i can make grooves or parting with confidence...
so. having 2 heads, i decided to try some anodize, as had trouble with reds in the past, decided to try again (blues and greens seems to be a lot easier to use).
tomorrow will try another gig for make the holes in my new head....View attachment 118773View attachment 118774
Great job on the anodising. What dye did you use?
I spent some 2 weeks last year experimenting with anodising with mixed results. Part of the problem was not being able to get de smut solution in the UK.
I tried commercial red dye but the colour was more orange than red and it was very expensive. RIT dye was much better and cheaper but the red fades in direct sunlight. I had test samples outside for several months. Commercial dye kept its colour, RIT red faded after a couple of months. RIT blue and black kept their colour quite well.
