Accidentally Washed My Anno Off
 
So I have a dye tip from a Stainless Boomstick from 2003 off my Reflex. Since I bought it, it had old paint that was like sludge. I figured that I would boil the tip and the paint would come off. So I boiled it for like 10 min and wasn't having any success. I figured I needed a detergent to loosen the oil off the inside of the barrel. I decided to use some Oxyclean. Threw it in the pot, it boiled over immediately I cleaned up the mess. Put it back on the flame. Pulled the tip out and:

Seems like the dye part of the anno is gone but the hardening is still there.

Eh it was just the tip, haha. I don't run the boomstick anyway, too heavy.

It's not too bad of a loss. The front of the gun fades to dust black which is probably the most common UL/Boomstick front out there these days; totally replaceable if ya want.

So it didn't take all the anodizing off, but just the dye? I sounds like Oxyclean might be a good way to get unwanted color off a part without having to worry about it pitting the metal or stuff like that.

That's the way I see it. Very common color.

I wonder if the ano was sealed properly.

minimag03 04-03-2013 09:40 PM

Does oxyclean actually remove oxidation like the name infers? The reason I'm asking is because I thought anodizing was basically a controlled form of oxidation to which dye was added. I would have guessed the sealing process would have fixed it better though, very good point.

How much do you charge to do an entire gun?
