Default Anyone Anodize Here?

Hello folks,

So like the title says, does anyone here anodize? I'm doing a small project and I'm trying to find someone who anodizes and lives here in Toronto.

A little info on the project:

its a small run of custom anodized metal yoyos (yes those toys you all played back in the day) and custom engraved in order to promote an event.

Anyways, if you provide custom anodizing services or you know of someone who does, please let me know!

Thank you for the advice, I did read couple articles..

but from what I gather, it seems much safer to ask someone else who has had an experience in this kind of field.

Depending on what it is exactly that you want to do you can simply and safely do it yourself, or you had better send it to a pro.
I did some nickel-plating of brass and that is very easy and can be done by anyone who has some basic sense about chemicals (don't drink, wear gloves, use safety glasses) and has a power-supply.
Depending on the state of your objects, result can be great.
If you want something like chrome-plating, that is a very different matter. You had better not try that yourself as safety measures have to be much stronger
