On Episode 5 of Kevin's Korner - BLAST IT ALL! - Kevin Tetz shows us various media blasters offered by Eastwood to remove paint and rust.
Darn sand gets in everywhere! I guess the name "sandblasting" is only that... since sand has almost nothing to do with what we do in the hobby to get rid of paint and coatings. Like everything else, "media blasting" has gotten more sophisticated as time goes on.. and that's a great thing! I've seen dry ice blasting for historical buildings that leaves even the original painted bricks intact, soft mortar, all of it is not disturbed, but layers of ugly coatings are removed easily.. .and the best thing is that the ice evaporates leaving no residue behind that can hurt the environment... ( except the old paint)
One of the coolest things that Eastwood has come out with lately is the dual blaster system... it lets you blast separately with soda or something much more aggressive, and switch on the fly... or blend the two for a good mix of removal with minimal profiling. There's a fancy word... Profiling refers to the damage that the media ( sand, etc) does to the surface of the metal... IE- digging pits into the surface as it hits under pressure. SODA is very kind... leaving no profile at all, no pits... zero! In fact, with low pressure you can blast over chrome, plastic, and glass and not damage it... invest in some etching cleaner to prep your surface for coatings after using soda.... It leaves a film, which is good for corrosion protection, but bad for adhesion.... I've had a "spot-blaster' for years.... It's a great tool! Even has a little fixture for containing most of the blast media and not spreading it all over the shop, but it's limited because of the small tip. ( insert joke here.... IE- "that's what SHE said...") a blast cabinet is the cat's pajamas!!! Total isolation of the media, you can change the media relatively easily, and they're affordable with many different choices to fit whatever tool budget you have.
Bottom line.... Media blasting is one of the most effective, fastest, and affordable way to prep a surface for coatings..... if you're a tool freak like the rest of us, check out Eastwood's selection of abrasive blasting options.

Eastwood "Master Blaster" Dual Blaster lets you switch "on-the-fly" between soda and abrasive media, or a combination of both!
Eastwood's exclusive Master Blaster features our patent-pending "Mixing Valve" that lets you switch instantly between full-flow soda media for gentle-to-mild cleaning or paint removal on stainless, chrome, aluminum or fiberglass, and full-flow aggressive abrasive media for removing even the heaviest rust from frames and suspension components. Also allows infinite "on-the-fly" mixing of the two medias for controlled removal of paint or rust/corrosion on virtually any surface. A must for the serious restorer!
Switch between medias in seconds, or mix at an infinite ratio between the two
On-the-fly switching or mixing saves you money and cuts blasting times in half
Includes extra nozzles and moisture separator

Synopsis: This futuristic tale is set in a world where the Elites are assigned various social classes based on their hair color in the city of Tanagura. Iason Mink, a high-class "Blondie", runs into Riki, a black-haired "Mongrel", and makes him his "Pet", which Riki resents being. As Riki learns of the dangers Iason faces by keeping him, he finds himself developing feelings for his master. Focusing on the relationship between Iason and Riki, Ai no Kusabi also explores issues of caste systems and social exclusion. [From Wikipedia]
