View Full Version : Parkerized an Oprod.....

....in this! A 3' length of 3" ABS cemented to a 3" flange(left knockout in place). It holds a gallon of mix easy and covers the part with lots to spare. I heated the solution to 200 F. and preheated the oprod in the kitchen oven at 170 F. Poured the juice into the tube and dropped the rod in for 10 minutes. (mechanics wire into the tube part to remove). After it was out I rubbed it down with some Castrol motor oil and then gun grease. The oprod looks almost as good as new.http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q699/falover57/46fb9a4c-5d0e-4c3f-b5a6-96223773f320_zpsixiganjh.jpg (http://s1354.photobucket.com/user/falover57/media/46fb9a4c-5d0e-4c3f-b5a6-96223773f320_zpsixiganjh.jpg.html)http://i1354.photobucket.com/albums/q699/falover57/006_zpsbjmffcll.jpg (http://s1354.photobucket.com/user/falover57/media/006_zpsbjmffcll.jpg.html)

Lol, that's innovative.

You might also try your local commercial plumbing supply or scrap yard. Not sure how well abs hold up to heat long term. You could probably find a length of cast iron pipe reasonable cheap and then you're good for life.

Would have to be stainless steel as any ferrous metals would be parked over and over. I would get a proper parkerizing tray if I was doing this for cash. I am cheap and $27.00 for pipe/flange/cleaner and glue seemed reasonable.
