I thought I needed a stainless tank, but how about this one? It states in the description that it can be used for parkerizing.

    We built a stainless tank.
    Make sure you get a cover for it.

    I did some parkerizing some years back in a non stainless tank; it was not a problem. I got a local sheet metal shop to bend me one up, to my spec, in a heavy gague sheet steel and then I welded it tight back at the shop. It got me into parkerizing in at very low cost. The tank took a layer of parkerizing itself and that was it. As I wasn't doing large quantities of batches the cost of the stainless wasn't one I wanted to put out. I haven't needed to do any parkerizing since, but if I really wanted to restore a parkerized gun I wouldn't hesitate to drag the old tank back out and use it...
