"Is doing anodizing safe?"
I'm 17 looking to find out if doing anodizing is safe. If so how can I anodize a paint ball gun.DAVID D

It's safe if you've been trained, are wearing proper personal protective equipment, and the facility is equipped properly (which most home environments aren't). Just as it's safe to do prescribed chemistry experiments in the chem lab and woodworking in the school shop, but not at your desk in history lecture.
There are anodizing shops who serve the public and would be happy to anodize your paint ball gun.

not to mention that the setup cost (acid, distilled water, tanks, power supply, dyes, etc) for doing a single gun would be higher than having an existing shop do the job for youJason aube
