Target Darts.

removing an anodized finish
a bit pointless this as you can by natural ally stems ,but i thought i would share anyway. to me it looks like phil taylor is using pinch grip stems ,but plain unanodized ones which i cant see online so i thought i'd try and remove the finish from and old stem i had laying around. i may be and probably am wrong about the stems hes using but all you need to do is spray some oven cleaner into a small container and put your stems in and leave to soak for 20 minutes and wipe the rest of the finish of. it leaves them with a matt finish

comparison with a natural stem the top one was blue as can be seen on the threads

I like that a lot. I think the natural finish would actually look great in some situations. Less hot-roddy and more military looking. It would match some darts better. I would use a glass tube so as to use much less cleaner. I think I would also do this outside. Oven cleaner stinks like nothing else.

a glass tube would be a good idea , i used a fair bit. time is closer to 20 minutes than 10 ,i'll edit main post. wasn't really paying attention the first time and actually forgot about them . just tried again with some o rings on to experiment here is the result
