Just wondering if there is need for sandblasting here in our "motorcycle world".

I have an entire sanblasting unit set -up ....but don't know if I should start doing it again or sell it..... I work pretty cheap, just cause I enjoy it, but if I aint gonna use the stuff no more I can make room for somtheing else in the garage.

Any input??

Yeah Moe...I was thinking about just having people ship me the parts and then I'd ship them back....my turnaround time is usually 2-3 days depending on my schedule and the part in question.

It could have saved some clean up about 4 months ago, however we got a bigger cabinet for blasting..

Spank- what do you think the best blast media for our parts is??? Metal oxide???

or Aluminum Oxide, I would think would be ok too.

or just the old fashion way....very fine sand! Thats always worked great! :spin:

To be honest.... I think thats all you realy need need....you can always give Aluminum Oxide a try to do a few passenger pegs and see how that turns out. But I think you will probably get about the same results.
Your stuff comes out great...so like the old saying goes "If it aint broke , dont fix it".....

IMO I think using the different medias would make more sense if you were doing an entire car or something of that nature.
For example...my father-in-law just had his 35 Chevy media blasted, came out awesome.
