Can I sandblast a yoyo with super fine sand and keep reusing the sand
Sand might be too coarse and end up taking off wayyy more metal than you want.
A blasting cabinet usually recycles the blasting media. If you’re not using a cabinet, probably not since there’s no good way to collect it. BTW - on a yoyo I’d use beads instead of sand.
I have a sandblaster what can I put in it so I can use it
With a cabinet
Use glass beads - a fine grit.
How much is that
I really don’t know. It’s been awhile since I worked w/a blaster and the company I worked for bought all the blasting media.
Will Home Depot carry it ???
Check their web site - search for “sand blast” on the site.
Places like Harbor Freight, Northern Tool etc. sell bead media.
Be warned the grit sizes and quality of the media vary greatly.
I saw this and thought…
My dad bead blasted my Genesis. It’s my beater.
Interesting, how come? I’ve personally blasted two yoyos, and they both turned out fine.
Should I put up a bst looking for beater metals
Oh, it was insanely vibey before.
