    I WAS going to polish the aluminum and then anodize clear but I didn't like the way the test piece came out so instead I'm going to nickel plate all of the aluminum. Make strong like bull.

    How much airflow do you need to run this? Would it work with a Puma with the small included tank? Or would you need a York or equivalent?

    Puma with a tank should be fine. The tank is the key.

    Laser ENGRAVING is done to actually remove material leave an embossed feature. You can see and feel it. It takes longer and effects the metal more than if just etching/marking it. In engraving, the material is super heated and burned away but this causes some of the material to “foam up” and leaves a slightly rough feel. Since I’m going to be doing a bright nickel (copper/nickel) on the caps for the #FenderBlender it means I wanted a very smooth surface. Well nothing a few runs across an Emery cloth won’t fix. Totally smooth and ready for plating
