    Hey Kyle,

         That will be a pretty good drive for you will you have any of that beverage left by the time you arrive. Would be great to meet you if you are ever in the area.

    Don, have you tried glass beading any aluminum yet? Just curious to see how much testing and playing around you are doing.

    Just spent about an hour with the blast cabinet, think I`m gonna like it. Made one little boo boo though I turned on the vac and forgot to open the air intake vent, sucked one of the gloves right off the tube.Maybe I just didn't have it tight enough or maybe my vac is to strong.

    Yeah no harm done just put it back on and tighten up the clamp. So all is good when do you want to try it out? No have not tried aluminum.

    I'm back to working full time again, so it may be awhile. I'm anxious to try it though! I guess I'll have to find something in the garage to bring along and blast.

    The media I`m using is called Black Diamond it is a coal slag base almost no dust and no silica. Leaves the surface just a little rough but sands smooth easily.

    Well then, if that's the case, then maybe it shouldn't be used for aluminum surfaces? Do they have recommendations or precautions listed as to what should or shouldn't be blasted with that type of media?

    I think on Eastwoods website they break down all of the types of media and tell you what they recommend it for .

    Glad the new toy is working out for you. Making me very jealous.

    Haven`t had much time to play lately but I think it will get a pretty good workout soon.
