Default Dustless Blasting

Not sure if you guys have seen this. Its pricy but pretty impressive how fast it works without warping panels. Watch the video where the Caddy gets blasted.

That is very cool. I like how it didnt muff up the chrome trim or glass.
But how many shops have a 10 hp 185cfm comressor laying around.
The cost projection didnt include the cost of the blasting unit nor the compressor rental.

If I were into restoration at that level, I would want one.

Looks like nothing more than a wet soda blaster

Yeah, I wonder what they cost. This is known as grit blasting, right? I think you can retrofit regular pot blasters to do this. Somehow I think you'd still be wise to wear a respirator.

I have done tons of wet soda blasting and the dust is minimal to zero and thats in a chamber, if you use a wet blaster of course there's no dust, the water pulls it down.

The little one they show in the video is $3,995 I've never heard of the wet soda blasting, do you need special equipment for that?

I'm going to play devils advocate and say that Caddy has been stripped and repainted many times before. I have never been lucky enough for paint and primer come off that easy on a whole car while blasting but I haven't had that big of a compressor either.

Saw a blaster that uses Dry Ice (riced) that works like you wouldn't believe.

The clean up consists of sweeping and vacuuming the material that was blasted

off, and of course, the dry ice just evaporates. No need for tarps or drapes, either.

You need about the same setup - I honestly think that is just a soda blasting vessel with no cabinet. I wet soda blast things like cylinder heads and such so as to not profile them.
