Now Bill!  The difference between a syphon feed blast cabnet and 
a pressure blaster.  That's like the difference between a raw and
hard boiled egg, for Pete's sake!

I don't know that I'd be trying to blast the paint off, unless you
are using something very soft.  I'd look at a chemical stripper or
since you want to do it yourself - ** SANDPAPER **
