Restoration tools......Has anyone tried

Has anyone tried one of these abrasive sandblast kits for your pressure washer?

I have a pressure pot type sandblaster, but it requires lots of air, creates lots of harmful dust, and makes a h**l of a mess. I have been thinking of trying one of these but have been skeptical so far. Tell me what you think.

Never heard of them before, but I'm interested too. I've got access to a pressure washer, and that looks a lot cheaper than an actual sandblaster.

I believe stgil from France did his entire tube with this method. Do a search here under "pressure washers"

Fred, perfect timing on this thread. I did a search and found the following the thread on the subject: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/pr...aster-1244595/

As for the timing of this thread, I was looking for a substitute for buying a monster air compressor to do some sandblasting, and it seems this might be the answer. I think I'll just get a pressure washer and one of those setups. I'll probably pick up one that shoots about 2700-3000 PSI. I need to give the house a good scrubbing anyways!

Thanks for the link. I googled passivation bath and it comes up with prep for stainless. Any one have any experience with the process. I thought of using a metal prep that mixes with water that could be sprayed through my pressure washer during the rinse process. We used some at work once that we sprayed with a pump up sprayer to prevent rust until we could paint.
