Just gotta say that this blast cabinet I picked up has come in very handy. My alternator case was pretty nasty. Used some glass bead to clean it up.


BTW, anyone needing to use the blast cabinet is welcome. Got my compressor all set up!

Before:


After:


Time to start working on the beam I got from Eric! I'll be using some Nickel Slag for that though.

Wow are you serious! I have a 73 VW Thing and I'm always coming across parts I wish I could blast. I would buy a cabinet but I don't have a garage or compressor. I've even tried talking a friend into letting me buy one and put it in his garage.

Nice work Duke...you gonna get your bus going before the Lind run? I need to get some different abrasives for my cabinet, I just got the Harbor Fright specials...I'm sure that Spokane Abrasives has some stuff that's better.
