I lashed out on an attachment for my high pressure water washer
which uses a venturi to suck dry sand up into the water and blast
it. Its a lot safer than dry blast medium which really needs some
serious respiratory protection for you, family and neighbours. Sand
is absolutely out of the question because of the risk of silicosis, I'm
not sure that you can buy canister type filters for silica - usually
you have to have an external clean air supply if blasting sand.
Most of the Karcher type washers now sell the attachments.
The other advantage of wet blasting is that its easy to clean up, you
dont get dust everywhere and its nowhere near as noisy either.
I tried the air grit blasters - pressure is not an issue with most
compressors - volume is the main issue. Grit blasters use LARGE
amounts of air and the average home compressor is not upto the
