    And then the wife says she might get it for me for X-mas...if I pay the shipping...hehe...


    So if she gets that for me,...then I'll just go and get a new 33 gal air compressor...and I'll be setup for the winter rebuilds :p


    Strange though...

    I can't find any reveiws for this sandblaster.... [​IMG]

    I got about 30+ wheels, engine parts for four cars, suspension parts to clean up, body panels...if they can fit in there...and other odds and ends.....

    I hate rust...and I'm tired of working with crappy parts...that all they need is a quike blast, a quik paint...and they are as good as new....

    Plus I can also offer cleaning up rims at like $10-15 a rims where other places do it for $25 a rim....so a few sets and it can pay it's self off. And valve covers and other small items.

    I think the next project will be to get the crx back on the road....since I just got walters car on the road yesterday....and we almost junked it until Chris came thru on a carb for it.....huge props to Chris... [​IMG]

    I love sandblasting all my suspension parts and painting them. I take my car apart often and it makes everything so much better.

    Buy it - guy I hang out with has a media blaster and makes tons of $$$ with it. Great for fixing up rusty crap, painting it - and selling it on Ebay for way more than what you'd normally get.

    Congrats on the blaster. You know I have some things to get in there.

    typically its a 50 gal steel drum, an element and some chemical.
    I use lye works great but very costic. They are cheap to run and work great, drop the part in and wait 20-30 mins pull part out and rinse lather and repeat
