Hi All, I have access to a bead blaster here at college. It will strip anodizing at 120 psi to allow a high polish to be put on the aluminium . Then turn the pressure down to about 40 psi and with fresh beads you can replicate the dull sheen of anodizing. I have had great success on derailleurs and cranks.
