    Sandblaster

    Do any of yall use sandblasters? Im sort of looking for one that'll do bigger projects the the harbor freight one I currently have.
    I was looking at one at the eastwood company
    http://www.eastwoodco.com/shopping/p...ProductID=5885
    and was wondering if anyone had any experience with that one. its about 500 bucks, so before i spend that much i'd like to know it works pretty good.
    I just need something I can blast undersides of cars with, and a chassis every once in a while.

    does anyone use blasters for doing floors and such?

    Also looks like northern tool sells the same blaster that eastwood does for a little cheaper.

    Thanks for the link. Any info on it? Does it work pretty good without having to fool with it too much?

    I found the same model at northern http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...6970_7960_7960
    I think thats the same although the price is almost a 50 dollar difference.

    If I was to get into this WITH a BUDDY, I would hunt up an N-O Allentown Gunite Machine and a 375 portable air compressor and go!!

    I would operate the old N-O Allentown and let my Buddy do the nozzling!!

    And if the dust got too bad, I'd hook up a Gardner/Denver boiler feed water pressure steam/air operated booster pump and use a 10,000 WOG needle valve on the waterbody at the nozzle tip to cut the dust to ZERO!!
