  I do have a healthy compressor, a big boy 2-stage 5HP with 80gal 
tank.  I tried sand blasting with my neighbors Harbor Fright el-cheapo 
sand blaster and sand from Home Depot (play sand and yes I used a proper 
fresh air supply so no worries about silicosis) but the thing kept 
clumping up the sand and clogging.  With the small nozzle, I figured it 
would take forever to sand blast the body if I got proper media, that I 
can't seem to find locally.  I have a small soda blaster, the little 
portable 10lb. one from Eastwood, it did a nice job a 1/8" at a time.  
Will a proper pressure blaster with Aluminum Oxide media really work 
that much better. I don't mind buying tools :)

A gun is like a parachute, if you need one but don't have it,
you'll probably never need one again.
