    Sandblasting: What abrasives do you suggest?

    My gold standard. As I said above mix in some medium coal slag for heavy rust. The coal knocks the scale off faster than pure Starblast then the Starblast takes over to get down in the pits.

    Sandblasting: What abrasives do you suggest?

    My favorite mix is 3 parts medium coal slag to 1 part Starblast. I can sweep it up, screen it and run it through 2-3 times if I want. It is the best cutting I have found for rust. The opinion on the SPI group is crushed glass cuts even better but since "I am never restoring another car" I may...

    Agree except on media size for a small system. I have a Clemco gravity blaster and a Husky 60 Gal 2 cylinder 220V with and auxiliary tank. The large coal slag mixed in makes a HUGE difference in chipping off paint and surface rust for me and my setup. I would not attack a rust belt car with my...

    My local auto paint store has it in large and medium. It really knocks the surface rust off FAST then the Starblast gets down in the pits. Starblast lasts a long time as well which is nice.

    I’ve wanted to try crushed glass but the one and done always stopped me. On a typical AZ car I blast everything and I can get away with about 2 bags of Starblast and 6 bags of Coal Slag. When I calculate how many equivalent bags I would need running the media through only once I decide not to.

    That’s a hard job if you don’t have a really good compressor. Getting that black rust out of the rust pitting takes pressure and volume. My magic formula is Starblast mixed with large coal slag. I also recycle and sweep it and use it again and again. When I notice I don’t really have big chucks...

    holy cow. 32000 Lumens each and 9 of them. That puts you at 96 Footcandles for your space, which is in a nice spot! Recommended for a shop is 75 to 125 by the looks.

    Bet he knew he could not get one, or it was the name dropping that backfired.

    where I was going was looking across the shop does the clear blind you and would be better if it was defused? I have very limited experience with LED lights. Just something I noticed when looking at them at Lowe’s.

    Shop Lights

    With the new lift I am really needing better lighting in the garage. I just installed a new door with frosted windows in one panel that made a HUGE difference but that does not help at night. I like my work areas to be like the surface of the sun when I am working (which is why I typically...

    You have not texted me a photo yet? Does not surprise me as ACM said I bought the last 9000 lb Forward lift west of the Mississippi, likely tired of telling people they don't know when they can get one in. They are struggling getting product these days.
