    Re: CV anodizing and electrolyte Titration

    No idea on the eddy current gauge... I've been trying to locate an assortment of alloys, and I'm haveing a hard time with that one. Maybe I'll hit up some local machine shops for some scraps.
    BTW, I'll be away from my shop for awhile, so I won't be reporting anything until I'm back.
    Keep, the fort intact while I'm gone... don't burn down the shop (gotta remember to unplug those heaters).
    I do things.

      And within next to no time, I will be back into the situation I was in several years ago. Trying to deal with CV anodizing technical support.

      Don't ask guys! You WILL NOT GET IT!

      Bin thur! Dun that! AND it SUCKS!


      Perhaps we could make a 'private' forum for you guys, but personally I don't want this read by the majority of our customers.

      I'm having nightmares already!

        I have some thoughts on tests id like to run but I really need an eddy current gauge.....and I dont have one any longer. Anybody have one for rent or seen adecent price for a used one?
        I don't know what a decent price is, or even if this is what you need, but a quick search on ebay for "eddy current" turned this up:

        Is that what you need?

          Well, I can certainly understand the desire to not get a bunch of tech calls from folks trying to do CV anodizing, but I beg you PLEASE don't kill this thread! Some of us have already pretty much got CC anodizing figured out and are adventurous enough to want to experiment with other methods. Who knows, maybe someone will discover something that works even better than the current CC/LCD methods. Put up a seperate forum if you must and put up disclaimers that you don't want to hear about any tech problemes related to what goes on there... but please don't squash this thread. What these guys are up to is interesting!

            understandable Mike.

            Acidrain- Please PM me when you get back.

              Just to give you a heads up-

              Spoke with AF for a bit, he said its really dependent on the dissolved AL content.

              I have a 3:1 water to acid ratio and was wondering if this would change the perameters you gave me? I dont have anything titrated and wont for a while so would the calcualtion of SA and the proper calculations work in my favor till I get the titration kit or is this CV method forgiving?



              AF- Thats hard to say. Its not that acid ratio that is the issue with CV, its the Aluminum content of the bath. Typically you want about a 10% of dissolved aluminum content in your ano bath to run CV. I dont know what your 3:1 works out to as in Grams per Liter, so I cant weigh in on that.




              For now, ill just measure out the parts and compile a list. I wont have any issues sharing SA dimentions.

                Acidrain- have a gauge on the way. Let me know when you want to do some experimenting.

                  I'm back now. I'm in the process of locating different alloys. Any help out there? I'm looking for 2024, 6062, 5052, and 7075. Larger samples would be best. I can machine to shape, and pay for shipping.
                  I got a sweet spread sheat that calculates how much aluminum to add, etc., per titration results.

                  People, this is advanced stuff here, and contrary to caswells proven methods. If you try CV anodizing, you're on your own. Don't ask for help, don't anodize non-replacable parts, and don't contact caswell with problems. This is just an experiment, and I suspect the results will only confirm the validity of Fibergeeks, and others hard work, which has discovered and proven the LCD method works (and works well).
                  I do things.
