Galvanizing soon, batching orders?

Talked just now to Dave at Baltimore Galvanizing. He sez he will gladly do any parts I bring as long as they are bare metal. They do have a hydrochloric tank that they use to treat parts before dipping but that is not for actually stripping heavy scale.
I hope to be taking them the stuff by the middle of December. Have to have some things chem stripped and some blasted before hand.
Anyone want in on the batch let me know. Probably will need more than one trip, so if you miss the first, you might catch a later batch.

I'd be interested. For the NoVA crew, I have a guy that does blasting if anyone wants to jump in.

Bill, what's the cost?

They do soda and media blasting. Near Betsy Ross Bridge off 95 in the city.

Don't know, don't really care. I'll pay him what he wants cuz I gotta have it. For me I'm sure I'll be into it for several, several hundreds of clams cz I'm doing every part that's not aluminum.

Bill, interested but not sure I'll make the December run. The goal is to finish up the trailer and then dissasemble and galvy, but I'm way behind on the garage and don't see me getting back to the trailer this year. Keep me posted for the next one though.

Thanks,
charles

So how will we know what to pay you? Most places have a minimum and/or go by the pound.

Will they air cool items that will warp when quenched? Small items ok?

And what does blasting cost. I think that can get very expensive fast.

Charles, I use Dominion Powder Coating in Manassas. He's pretty reasonable and I'll use him to prep my galvy stuff.

I'm pretty sure that's the guy I used before for powdercoating, but I blasted my stuff myself because it was an appreciable part of the cost. We'll see. I have a *lot* of stuff to do.

By the pound of course. Say my stuff weighs 150 pounds and yours weighs 50. So we have 200 pounds to dunk. Even if the minimum is 250 bucks for 500 pounds or whatever you'd still pay 1/4 of that.
We can round up or down a bit, or we can bust out the calculators and figure it out to the thousandth of a penny.

Indeed things such as the bulkhead will likely be last to go. Right now I have a rather large pile of door frames and random stuff that's off the truck. it's gonna be a while before all is done, but I'm still aiming for spring completion.

I'm ALMOST ready to do my series 2 down here in Bama.
Every time I think I'm finished I find some more small steel parts to take further apart!

What do you think about doing the diffs?

I'm dropping a trailer load off to be blasted in the morning and I'm with you, I want to do everything that is steel.

Would the Galvanize process goof up the bearing tolerances?
Anyone?

Why on earth would you galvanize diffs? Just get the cases media blasted and paint with Eastwood Chassis Black.

OK, so maybe I'm getting a L I T T L E carried away
This salt at the beach eats everything steel. Its a constant battle, even the nails rust thru the paint on the older houses.

So what is it that makes sense to remove from an otherwise working truck to have galvanized. While I won't be doing a bulkhead or frame, it would seem to make sense to to things like trailing arms, cap rails, shock towers, etc -- what else is a good candidate for this effort?
