Re: Sandblasting.. warped grill parts

Listen guys, I certainly don't want to sound like a know it all, as I am sure just about everyone on here is a more accomplished and far more knowledgeable in powder coating circles than I am...I do want to mention that heat DOES play a major factor in the warping of thin gauge metal.....The reason ...

Re: FORD Tractor grey??

RAL 7035 (Light Grey) is what you are looking for, it's a dead on match, unless you are looking for the grey from the 9N-8N-2N era of the 30's and 40's.

Re: Why do you have to be IDed to buy Bicarb of Soda?

On their website I can add it to the cart and go to checkout without anything about ID or age coming up. Didn't try to actually order it. They will do the $6.99 total flat rate shipping even for 4 bags, (200lbs) which beats driving to the store unless it's right across the street. Could be you just...

Why do you have to be IDed to buy Bicarb of Soda?

Sent my 18 year old son to HF to pick up 4 bags of blasting soda...They tell him he has to be 21 to buy it and they make him show an ID...What the heck is up with that? Anybody know why?

Re: Texas Bumper Price Check

If I remember correctly those are a $2800 pair of bumpers, and blasting off all the old powder coat took us about 8 hours. A lot of nooks and crannies, heavy and time consuming werk I'm going to guess with my dustless blaster I could strip both of them together in less than an hour. And yes, I am a...

Re: My Eastwood Pro 1100 has bit the dust

I have two 1100 pro guns and love them like a child :oops: They do a bang up job. At one time there were a lot of them on eBay when Eastwood got rid of them. I don't understand your problem with the EZ50 because most guys like them fine unless yours had a problem? As for as a small self contained g...
