Shot Blasting Equipment

Postby DoubleD » Mon May 11, 2015 11:04 pm

I'm considering a shot balster fro preparing my small parts for powder coat. Anyone have or use one they can recommend or not recommend. Any info would be appreciated.

shot blast or sand blast?

shot blast is heavy duty blasting with steel shot, the only shot blast equipment i've worked with was industrial high feed thru
the nature of the beast makes the machines very self destructive and high maintenance

Try a wet bead blaster? We use them at work for cleaning up everything from stainless to brass and copper. It doesn't damage the surface and things come out looking like new.
