60778. Need Black Chrome Plating

June 24, 2018

RFQ: I have a 1981 Yamaha XS1100LH Midnight Special (four cylinder) with the original 4-into-2 Black Chrome mufflers in pretty good visual condition - a little surface rust on the underside. However, the baffle on one muffler has broken loose and I have learned from owning a previous 1980 XS1100LG and another XS1100LH that you cannot weld these mufflers or vibration will crack them at the repair welds. I have a used spare set of these mufflers (with only one of the short inside headers) that will need some sanding but appear intact, and one spare for the one with the damaged baffle that has no rust but someone appears to have tried to polish it with the wrong stuff and the finish has silver chrome looking swirls in it. So minus one short header, I have the makings for two full sets of the 4-into-two exhaust systems that I want to pay to have black chromed. Money is concern, but I am very interested in getting both sets black chromed soon if anyone can do it or refer me to someone that can.

June 13, 2018

RFQ: We seek a reliable shop to anodize finish our machined parts on a regular on-going month-to-month basis. We prefer a small facility that offers its customers affordable/reasonable pricing absent high lot charges since we rarely have more than 15 small parts to do at one time.

Our company makes one-up bushings from 7075 T6 Aluminum. The bushings measure: 6" long x 1.75" in diameter and have one center bore hole of approx. 1". There is no masking required and this is a straight up easy finish job for a small shop. Please see our photo showing several bushing pieces.


Due to the small lightweight size of our pieces, we can ship to any state in the lower 48 states.

Lastly, there will be no pressure to finish the parts quickly since we will allow you 3 weeks (21 days) from your receipt, giving you plenty of time to fit our job in your schedule each month and/or combining it with another job. All we ask is that your work is excellent quality.

We would also request that you Laser Mark or send our parts out to have them Laser Marked with the Part Name, Part Size, and our Company Name.

Please contact me with a price quote. Thank you for taking the time to submit your quote.

60767. Need AgCl Coating via Web Processing

May 25, 2018

RFQ: Trying to locate anyone that can apply a AgCl coating to a high quality Silver foil in a web process (roll to roll) to yield rolls of the material for a high speed rotary diecutting process. Current process of dipping is not scalable. Current process utilizes a KCl to cause the AgCl to sort of create a scum layer of the AgCl which then attaches itself to the silver sheets being dipped.

Finished coated product is shaped into small components as electrodes and is trapped between layers of adhesive and other PET films.

Any guidance on who might be capable would be greatly appreciated.

60750. Small Project -- golden orange Anodizing

May 8, 2018

RFQ: I have a small project I hope someone can give me an estimate for. I'm building an aluminum trike for my Paramotor out of 6061.

2. 1 - 2 x 3 angle 20" long
3. 2 - 1.25" x 6.5" tube
4. 2 - 1.25 x 10"  tube
5. 1- 1" x 32" tube - U shaped with 10" cross-section
6. 1- 1" x 20" tube
7. 1- 1.5" x 54" tube 
8. 1- 2"x8" flat plate

60750-1b   60750-1a

These will be easy to ship, so I don't mind sending them out of state. I've contacted some local places here in VA/MD but they all have their hands full with large scale projects.

I'd like a simple Type 2 anodizing in a light color (red, gold, golden orange, etc.)  Just need the outside of the tubes done if that makes a difference.

I am looking to gold plate with 18k and rose gold multiple electronic stainless steel watches. Quantity 10-10000.

Can anyone recommend best, most economic finishing/plating process that can deliver best quality/color, long lasting plating?

Ideally, watch metal/bracelet metal should reflect the texture and color of pure, high quality, 18k or rose gold and last for over 10 years.

I've read on this forum about multiple methods of coating, about applying 3-10 micron gold (which increase production costs). Also about clear or gold-toned transparent/translucent top coat/lacquer on top of plated gold.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If any of local finishing shop suppliers (electro, ion, ZrN, PVD plating) are present here, I would love to meet to see the samples and discuss the costs.

Thank you,

60686. Remove Heavy Oxide from NiCrAl

February 6, 2018

RFQ: We recently had a company roll Evanohm R material to various thicknesses of .004", .005", .006", and .008" at a width of 5.25" and requested annealed. When they annealed the material it appears something was wrong with their process as we have a heavy oxide layer (5 to 8 micron) on the surfaces. We can grind the oxide off or we can chemically etch the oxide off for our needs in small strips. We have several feet (> 500 ft) of material on each roll from which we need to remove the oxide layer. In order to salvage this material are there services that can either mechanically grind or chemically etch this material down controlling the thickness to the ± .00025"?

We have found a local TiN coater, but their work isn't the best quality so we are looking for somewhere we can either take the parts to have done, or send them off. Colors kist often asked for are rainbow PVD, titanium nitride, and black PVD. If anyone knows of someone who does quality work for a fair price and who will do firearm parts, we would live to know who and where. Thank you very much.

60517. Cleaning up and Anodizing Investment Casting Brazed to Extrusion

October 3, 2017

RFQ: I'm looking for someone, preferably in the Montreal area, who can take care of cleaning up and anodizing some AL parts for me (Type II). Anodizing to protect first, visually appealing would be nice to have but not critical.


The part comprises an investment casting 713AL (BAlSi4) part that's been brazed to a 6061 extrusion using the Nocolok process, it has not been cleaned up after the braze and still has oxides etc on the surface. They may need to be mechanically cleaned before etch.

August 10, 2017

RFQ: I am bidding a construction project in Massachusetts. Part of the job requires us to Refurbish/Clean a historic Copper Cupola and install it on top of a monument. The cupola base is 5 ft x 5 ft square. It is 7 feet tall with a weather vain on top. The specifications say to 1) Repair all damaged components, including any punctures in the existing salvaged copper cupola. 2) Clean Cupola. Patina on cupola may be removed if necessary to provide a consistent finish. 3) All refurbishment shall match finish of adjacent surfaces upon completion of cleaning work. I just need to know the approximate cost of this type of work. I have not had any luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
