Sand blasting


#1

Can I sandblast a yoyo with super fine sand and keep reusing the sand


#2

Sand might be too coarse and end up taking off wayyy more metal than you want.


#3

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.


#4

I have a sandblaster what can I put in it so I can use it


#5

With a cabinet


#6

Use glass beads - a fine grit.


#7

How much is that


#8

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.


#9

Will Home Depot carry it ???


#10

Check their web site - search for “sand blast” on the site.

K thanks


#12

Places like Harbor Freight, Northern Tool etc. sell bead media.

Be warned the grit sizes and quality of the media vary greatly.
