This is way quicker and less hassle than using the oven degreaser method!

How I strip anodizing from rc aluminum parts

FAST & EASY

what you need:

1 can drano with crystals, Or similar powder form drain declogger solution

old metal pan or unwanted thick plastic tote

water hose with spray nozzle

old towel(s)

*Some form of protective gear, rubber gloves, and eye protection at a minimum.*

What you do

DO THIS OUTSIDE do not inhale the mixture fumes

Use drano powder sparingly like 2 tablespoons is enough for a large tub and add water enough to submerge parts

mix well, let stand 20-30 seconds

Again DO THIS OUTSIDE

drop rc part in solution, 30-60 seconds, slosh around, 30-60 seconds, flip over, slosh around remove. Or until desired result. WEAR GLOVES USE TONGS/etc.

wash off with water hose sprayer

wipe off thoroughly


now u have bare aluminum ready to polish or clear coat! Remember the parts are bare metal and are prone to flash corrosion and etc. Polishing them or coat with wd40 for storage if it's gonna be some days til you finish. Be sure to Follow Woodie's polishing guide!

I never tried that method. But like @Tunedpipe said easy off over cleaner. It work just as fast if not faster. Shoot, all you do is put parts in metal container that will allow part to be covered. Spray easy off cleaner in pot until covered let sit for 10 - 15 mins wipe off then wash. Or wait till it is they way you what it... easy pesey... It works very well and fast 👍👍

This takes on average from my experiences less than 5 mins to completely strip!
