on car rust removal

Can anybody suggest good sand blaster that i can use to remove rust in areas that I cant get tools to fit in. I was looking at this http://www.amazon.com/Campbell-Hausf...s=sand+blaster.

what media would I use.

That will be OK for small stuff like corners ect. More concern is your compressor. Blasters are HUGE HUGE consumers of air.
That blaster is a beginners unit which the air pulls the media along with it then onto the item being blasted.
Next is a pressure blaster which the media is put into a large hopper and the air is stored in the hopper and when let out it takes media with it. This is much more efficent.
Both will make one hell of a mess. I know from experience.

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

^ AIR.........you will need alot.

Just be very sure to use a good HOOD with an air supply or filter. be very careful with any sand. The dust is like fine glass and will cause Silicosis. Wallnut shells and many other options are more expensive but much less deadly.

I have a 30 gallon 4.5 or 6 cfm compressor, but this going to be used very little, my projects aren't enough for a decent set up. any other suggestions for a beginners set up.
