Hey there,

maybe it's a bit of an unusual question for a keyboard forum:

How do I get dents out of an aluminum case?

If have two dents in a newly cerakoted case. They bug me a lot.

Is it possible to just ask a professional metalworking company if they can get out the dent just by drilling the whole surface?

it would be very expensive to mill out the imperfections, you also need to re-anodize everything... so you would probably need to sand blast the original anodization away, fix the dents (possibly even by hand) and then anodize it back.

I mean anything is possible but you'd need to find a friend/maker/workshop willing to do it.
