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.
sell it on the nation as super leet 1 of 1 ano? make mad bank?
next time use this.
Pure Citrus Orange Air Freshener, 7 fl oz: Household Essentials : Walmart.com
i use it everyday to clean the worst guns you could possibly ever see.
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.
I wonder if the ano was sealed properly.
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?
