The aluminum is NOT ANODIZED (fully conductive to electricity) and is of a more workable alloy type than others on the market. Why?, I used a special 6063-T5 (HE-6) un-anodized aluminum because it is workable by a prop builder. Anodizing hardens the material surface and that’s not always good because anodizing makes it difficult work the component. Notably anodizing makes it hard to; machine, grain and/or, further polish, the component.

I want you to have options: This component is easy to; mirror polish to brilliance, drill, file, acid weather, rolex grain and, do anything else you can come up with, your the prop builder and I say have some fun! I also do not like anodizing because it does not look “prop authentic” to the 1960’s TV show.

The reason I made some of these to sell was in response to many many inquiries on my YouTube “startrekguy 2012” channel.
