Looks like that HF blaster did a pretty good job .
Did it take more effort than you thought it should or ???

Yeah kinda. When I first bought it I did the piece below. Had the flow just right, hardly used any media to do it, and it worked good. But I was able to elevate it and go straight at it with the gun. The seat was a little more difficult. I put the base in a garbage bag so just the feet that I wanted to sandblast were poking out. Did not want to get the glass media all in the tracks of the seat. Rust was so much worse and I am trying to maneuver and hold the seat base to get at under and behind the feet. I am trying to get media to come out holding the blaster sideways and tilted. Ended up using the rest of my media. No big deal. About 3lbs of the ground glass. More my fault then Harbor Freight. I mean you spend $20 for a sandblasting gun you can't expect much. Still happy that I own it.

The kind of personal armor are you wearing by using that gun without a blast-it-all cabinet?

Not what I probably should be wearing. Safety glasses, hat, and a paper mask. Doing it in the back far enough away from anything it could harm besides me.

My brother used to do it with a heavy Carhart jacket, leather gloves, and a chamois for a mask...just a suggestion.

As far as hitting your skin by accident you feel the ground glass hitting it for sure but it didn't break the skin. Didn't even leave a red mark. Which considering how it blasts the rust off half way decent is kinda surprising. This was an awkward situation trying to do just the feet on the seat base. Thinking I might by a bag of the crushed walnut shells to try as media for the next time.

What did you do to your XJ/MJ today?

Set up the gears in my HP30 last night. Gotta do the 8.25 still but it's currently under my other Jeep. Getting closer to the point where I'll just pull the red Jeep apart and start moving things over.

Good to know you're not gonna get hurt. To get hit by the setup my brother was using was brutal, instant flesh wounds similar to pressurized steam

I use to have a power washer that had that capability . If not careful it could cut you faster than a razor and hurt a lot more .

I know that from personal experience .

It's amazing what pressurized fluids will do. My father-in-law just got his trigger finger amputated cuz of a stream of diesel coming from a pinhole in one of his injectors.

It wasn't the initial wound that was the issue. It had shot a hole straight through his finger, and he took it as "Ah, I can handle that. Hurts but won't kill me." What he didn't realize was the rotting capabilities that diesel has on an open wound. He was developing gangreen inside his finger. It had to go. Had he refused to lose the finger, he would've eventually lost his hand, or potentially his arm.

My point here was that it was much more than a surface wound.

Had he known what he knows now he could've gotten it cleaned as soon as it happened and saved the finger.
