Author: Doug Braun <doug@dougbraun.com>

I got a new Eastwood catalog yesterday, and they are advertising a $129 kit to convert a regular pressure pot blaster to a soda blaster. (They also sell a couple of blasters with the kit already ins

So, how is the soda blasting setup actually different from a regular sandblaster? Any idea what might happen if you simply poured blasting soda into a regular sandblaster? Doug

It sounds like you have the perfect application for that gadget. And the price is right. I would just check the battery after a month or so, to make sure that it is not being over-charged and losing

I have one of those. They are OK, if a bit flimsy. There is a nice Schumacher battery maintainer that is often on sale at Wal-Mart. It has a sturdy case and wiring, and also does 6 and 12-volt batter

I just checked my Schumacher Battery Companion (which has been connected to a 6-bolt battery for several days) to a watt-meter, and it measured ZERO watts. It's probably safe to say it uses one watt

It's not at all warm. It must have a well-made efficient transformer in it. And the little green light is glowing, so it's getting power. When I connected it to the battery, the orange light glowed f

That last one likes like a good deal. You definitely want a 2-stage pump, preferably with cast iron cylinders. It's probably made in China, but the second one may be, too. In any case, it would take
