    Does Anodized Aluminum Fade in Sunlight?

    yea it will fade TRL stripe that is made into scales and the like use to be stored outdoors in saskatoon. The outermost always got faded over time, talking months and months if not a year or 2+. some colours are more noticeable then others when they fade. this is with the strip and i assume even the AA rings will also fade.

    Large AA scales with a bad smell

    Well when TRL Scales were made in Saskatoon, there was a Vinegar type smell from the coils when you cut the plastic off a new pallet of coils. That being said that smell didn't last long when the coils sat outside, I think just the weather got rid of whatever that was. Fun fact, sometimes a coil from a freshly cut open pallet wouldn't run right on the machines and leaving the coil in the sun for a day seemed to do something to the coil and the next day it would run fine try leaving your scales in the sun for a day with the bag open and see if that gets rid of it. edit. unless TRL changed what we used in saskatoon on the machines doing scales it was just WD-40, I don't know if they have changed as i have no knowledge of thier current manufacturing in the Toronto facility

    Slippery Pliers

    This can kinda depend on how you hold the pliers in the first place, hold the pliers so that they are aimed at one another should help. You could also cut part of the jaws off so that you hold the ring closer to the pivot point of the pliers.

    Welding advice

    Do Not Weld Galvanized Rings. Toxic fumes would be made, so just not a good thing to do. you could build a welder from a microwave, but you do need a timer in there for the weld on time. I would not do mig welding on chainmail. TRL does sell a resistance welder that does a good job, I have used it before. I believe they have videos on their youtube channel using said welder.

    Question about aluminum scales

    If you get the Non-anodized Brushed you should be good. I state the non-anodized because there is a anodized one and they are difficult to tell apart without using an Ohm meter
  11. It wipes off nicely, a little wd-40 will make it shine a little too.
