And I'm having too much fun with it. My father bought a 125 PSI 20LB hopper sandblaster at Harbor Freight and holy shitsnacks this thing rules! Made mincemeat out of the crap paint on an N97 in seconds. Ditto for some scale on my fathers F-250 frame. I think I'm going to do my wagon frame next. Twisted Evil

Sweet! I have one NIB in the back of my shed that I never used, mostly cause it was a friends that got left here LOL. Did you use a blasting cabinet, or just do it in the yard like I planned to?

We just did it outside, well, in the garage. But the thing has some great power. Now I just need to find a place that has Aluminum Oxide media cheapish locally. HF sells 44LB containers for $40 but I feel like to do the wagon I'll go thru a lot.

You can use just about any media for blasting off rust. Something like "black beauty" media, which is what I have always heard it referred to, is pretty cheap, can be had just about anywhere and blends in well with a dirt driveway if yo do it outside.
