Help with a project... Sandblasted needed, north side.
 
I am gearing up to build my next mobile workbench for welding and general fab work. I scored a nice old vise on Craigslist and would like to sandblast it before rebuilding and painting it. I'm hoping to get some time on a sand/media blaster on the Northside (or metro area) to clean it up.

I can exchange your time for your favorite :beer: or if I could help you with a project in return, I'd be happy to oblige. if I need to buy media or whatever to make it happen, just let me know.

I'm working from home this week and have some flexibility in my schedule if you have a blaster and some time.:thumb:

Feel free to PM me if you can help me out, thank you.

Here's a shot with a soda can for scale.

I have a sandblaster, I've never used it, want to use it? I would imagine you could get media from HF to use.

I have an 80 pound pressure blaster that you're welcome to use.
It makes a mess, but it works great as long as you have a compressor large enough to push it. I ran it on a 20 gallon compressor before, it just takes time to stop and go stop and go letting the compressor catch up.

I used it to sandblast my frame about seven years ago.
It works great and I'm not using it. so you can take your time with it. What I like to do for small projects is build a little work area out of plastic tarps. That way you can just sweep up the media, pour it through a screen and reuse it.

I don't see anything wrong with that vise :)

Looks just like the one sitting on my bench...same condition. Just lube it up and go for it.

Just kidding...good luck with the project.
