Default Re: Soda Blasting,Anyone?

i tried it on a rusty bumper-no go,hardly touched the scale.i did try it on an aluminum piece,cleaned off the paint and a couple stains and left a dull satin like finish.
so for something that needs a decent yet gentle cleaning it may be the way to go,carbs for instance.
i may try it to prep some aluminum for welding the broken piece on my crankcase.

using silica sand is a very unhealthy way to go,there are many better alternatives,and as Dave C mentioned proper ventilation and protection of your lungs is a given.
the paper dust masks dont work as they dont seal very well.
4.99 for one vs 4.99 for 100-id spend the money on a better one.
