What chemical is used to desmut aluminum? The desmut from caswellplating costs alot, and it would be great to find a cheaper place to get it.
When I used to anodize, I would just put the part in very hot water to seal it. Does this work as well as the sealant that caswell sells?

Unfortunately caswell doesn't list the chemical in the container. I believe someone once told me this would: http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=search
But I don't know if it would really be worth it.
Caswell gives you one quart with mixing instruction for 18 dollars. Radio Shack give you half that at an unknown concentration for $5. You could experiment, but there are no real garantees.
Of course for That price, I am not sure you care too much. (If I rember right it was 3 gallons of water with the one quart of Desmut (don't quote me on this my manual is over 40 miles away in my parents garage.)
