My son wants me to make some candle holders for his girlfriend. I am trying to decide on whether to use Brass or Anodized Aluminum. Could someone please tell me approximately how much it would cost to Anodize a piece of 6061 Aluminum 1" Dia. by 3" long just so I can get an idea. Thanks for your feedback.

unless you find a local guy that can do it for you for a 'one-off' item, most places will charge you for a larger order. I've looked around my area and it's $80+ for the smallest jobs they offer. I ended up choosing to anodize it myself as it'll cost about as much with the benefit that I can then anodize any project I choose to later on (and become that local guy that can do a 'one-off' for someone). there are a few threads on anodizing in the finishing forum here - check them out.
