    Got a new (to me) sand blaster!

    So, todays project will be setting up a new to me Snap-On sand blaster cabinet. It needs cleaned up and maybe a new piece of glass installed but it should make by small part restoration go a lot faster!

    What do you guys recommend for blasting media? I have mainly light rust and paint to remove...don't want to destroy the metal.

      You working it Barry - - sounds like you are really getting into it!

      My vote would be for the glass bead, only because it is usually a bit cheaper than the aluminum oxide. Both should serve your stated purpose.
