Gold VDF supply seems to be drying up... no more out of HongKong,
Japan online sellers appear all out (might be some in local shops)
and o/s shops elsewhere don't seem to be restocking anymore.
Blue has celebrated its 1st birthday... and scarily prices are going UP
In recent weeks they've been fetching MORE than what the kit cost new.
Nothing scientific, just personal observation.

be very careful about stripping anodising with caustic chemicals
it eats into the metal and by the time you've also buffed it shiny again
you've lost quite a bit off the surface... and your original precision is gone
if you're doing something like hingepin mounts, i'd suggest stuffing some
blutac into the hingepin cups and masking off the flat bottom surface.
Leave them coloured... & slopfree.
