If you ever wonder why your local ano shop doesn't do it this is what the machine looks like. Most shops that do it want runs of hundreds, i'm guessing just the power and wear to fire this thing up isn't even worth onesy twosy runs.

Mike doesn't do anodizing. He contracts all his ano work to anodizing companies, and has mentioned that he works (has worked) with more than one company. Since he doesn't really make any money off of it, Mike isn't big into doing special anodizing requests either.

I'm assuming these responses about a bulk order were totally tongue-in-cheek, but just in case they're not (hey, you never know on the internet!)...
the above math on getting a bulk order together in order for a company to purchase all new equipment is a little off. No one factored in the additional cost that an existing anodizer would have to pay in shipping, taxes, assembly and training to get a new machine operational, or the man hours/man power used to produce each piece. Even with a 1,000 piece order (a highly improbable number), it would still cost well over $100/each to cover all the costs involved.

Obviously, you'd be better off finding a shop that specializes in this process to begin with. Just be ready to pay a whole lot more for the color of the gun than what the entire gun cost in the first place.

It's because all these guys perfect their process and build a portfolio of work, invest in better equipment and don't waste their time with the little stuff. This is why it's so hard to get this aurora ano process done. Nobody wants to do one off, or with the shops I talked to, even 10 or 50 at a time. They're looking for thousands of little part runs that are going to be less headache.

Someone sells a bulk box of keychains or pocket knives, the stuff peels off or wears a year later, and it gets thrown out, nobody cares. Someone pays $300+ to get it done on their marker and it peels or wears in a year they're going to be pissed and expecting to have it redone for free.
