Default San Diego - Anodizing Group Buys - 2013

The purpose of this thread is to disseminate information on and organize Anodizing Group Buys (AGB) in San Diego.

If you wish anodizing services from these AGBs, please read the following:

These group buys are primarily for anodizing services following AIMSMALL's Quentin Defense AR15+AR10 80% Group Buys, though other groups may be included in the future.

As of today (4/1/13), there will be a minimum of 3 receiver group buys, 3 build parties, and 3 anodizing group buys (AGBs) immediately following each other, in support of getting your receivers in your hands ready-to-assemble as soon as possible.

If you desire anodizing services from one or more of these AGBs, please note the following:
  • It is not necessary to sign up in this thread – just show up at the build party
  • You can sign up for all anodizing services on the day of the build party
  • On the day of the build party, you will pay fees and sign a custody form
  • The following weekend, you will be able to pick up your anodized parts
Please also note the following when posting your order:
  • The price for this service is $16 per piece (upper or lower)
  • Price includes full professional bead blast to remove all machining marks
  • Price includes MIL-A-8625 Type III, Class 2, Hard Coat Anodizing in Black (more colors may be made available at a later time)
  • All pieces must be completely raw, not previously anodized
  • Turn-around time will be one week
  • The anozider we are using does have their FFL
Regarding anodizing in colors other than black:
  • 6061-T6 samples of anodizing colors will be available for display and inspection
  • When signing up for anodizing, you will be able to select possible alternate colors
  • If enough people sign up for a color, it will be used, otherwise anodizing will be in black

As of now, the Group Buys and Build Parties will occur on/around these dates:

----------------------------------------------------------------

2013 GROUP BUY, BUILD, and ANODIZE Schedule

----------------------------------------------------------------

GROUP #1 (COMPLETED)
Group Buy - March/April

I'll be part of Group 3 (if this coincides with Group 3 of the original Aimsmall GB) with two AR15 and one AR10 lowers.

Rorge I have a quick question for you: I am in group 3, however I have 6 additional lowers to do from Aimsmalls previous group buys & build parties, can I do these additional lowers when I do my new group 3 lowers?

As it stands now (it may increase depending on how many newer lowers I add to group 3) I will have a total of 13 lowers to do.

Rorge, thanks for the quick response. A few more questions for you (sorry to bug, but I am trying to get a handle on the logistics of this for myself and my friends that are in groups 1,2 & 3).

I just re-read the opening post which brings up a few questions:

1) You state the AGB will be "immediately following" the BP, does that mean that people who have finished early will have to wait the entire time for the rest of the group to be done before you start the Ano procedings?

2) Just saw that the turnaround time was 5-7ish days: This brings up the question on weather or not the Anodizer that you have picked has an FFL, or is somebody "babysitting" the lowers the entire time that they are in the shop. (not being a dick, just trying to find out what the rules/legality is on leaving a "firearm" at the Anodizers).

3) Is there any hope that "early finishers" at the BP's will be able to get thier lowers in to the Annodizer earlier with a same day turnaround?

4) Are you collecting lowers at the BP or do we have to physically take them down to the Anodizers ourselves?

5) What is the general location of the Anodizer? (downtown Diego, Carlsbad, Del Mar, etc). I dont need the exact address if your are keeping it on the down-low, just trying to figure out where we need to be to drop/pickup when done since myself & others will be coming down from the LA/OC area.

Thanks

Where is the San Diego location? That will make a difference whether or not I do yours or pay more to be near my house... What's the build party zip code?

I just re-read the opening post which brings up a few questions:
I'm going to address all of your questions at once, and if I miss something, just let me know.

My plan is to collect the pieces to be anodized from both days of the build party (Saturday and Sunday), and deliver them the following day (Monday) to the anodizer. Does this mean that they will start working on our stuff 15 minutes after I drop it off? Probably not, and here's why...

If you know the process, you know there are multiple steps, and it is done in batches. In the other thread I wanted to gauge general numbers so I could approach vendors with a minimum quantity to get the best pricing and also establish logistics. As you can imagine, good anodizing shops do anodizing, not front-office reception, so my contribution is aggregation - the collection, delivery, pick up, and return of pieces to and from the anodizer and you. This is how they want it, and this is what I've committed to. They don't want 50 people coming in one at a time to drop off their 2 or 3 pieces each. That would be unacceptable, and would increase costs for everyone.

Additionally, these are good shops, so (shocker!) they actually have other work to do, for numerous other companies and contracts. Each shop I interviewed (that I consider acceptable) requires a 2-5 day notification before dropping off work, and even then, based on what else is being worked on, it may sit in the queue for a couple of days before being processed. Personally, if a shop told me they could get us in and out in one day, I would trust neither them nor their work. If they have so little going on that they could accommodate us that easily, what does that say about the demand for their services? Not much, in my estimation.

Regarding pick-up, regardless of the location of the anodizer, I expect to return items to a North County location, as that seems to be central to most CalGunners. There are people in Santee and Chula Vista, but there are also people in San Clemente and Vista, so a place equally inconvenient to everyone is best, yes?

I would prefer group 1, but can do any of them. I have 1 white lower already completed that just needs to be anodized. Also local to San Diego. (North county)

I do not have a lower from one of the QD group buys but would be interested in getting my lower anodized. Is this available at this time? Thanks

Gentlemen!!

Regarding these Anodizing Group Buys I am organizing to coincide with the QD AR15+AR10 80% Group Buys and Build Parties, the anodizer(s) I will be using to treat the white/raw lowers coming out of the upcoming build parties DO HAVE THEIR FFL!!! If this is/has been a concern of yours, and you have been waiting to sign up because of this, please rest assured, the anodizing will be both professional, and 100% legit. Sign up with confidence!!

On Tuesday or Wednesday of this week I will be tallying this list, so if you are interested in the anodizing group buys, continue to put requests in this thread for anodizing in any/all/either of the upcoming Groups 1, 2, & 3.

If you have any further questions, please let me know!!
