Got this job because the other guy wasn't showing up on time when he said or giving a bill on a timely bases. It's all about the PR

Job took longer than we thought

Re: Come On, Share Some Pictures Of Your Work...


Took longer than I thought, the humidity was giving us problems
3 water traps were cracked open and two fans running on the dryers And still was getting blue flame. Made the fine glass run like crap too.
Had to keep stoping to get the grit to slide down in pot.

Over all it looked great in the end, and it's going into a heated paint booth at the customers place.

The fine glass is slower to blast with, but sells itself in the end!
The Finnish is clean... The painter has less work to do... And you can get right next to lines without cutting them up.

Got my foot it the door with this guy, all he does is work on trucks and trailers, open 24 hours a day. Does lots of work. Took a beating on the price, self inflicted. But if there's more work I'll make it up.

I was lucky there was no rust on the truck, just heavy epoxy paint.

Got good stats for my records for the next trailer.

P.S. I now wish after buying my 260 cfm ingersoll compressor that I had bought the 150 high pressure one...

That little bit more psi would have done better on the heavy coatings

Re: Come On, Share Some Pictures Of Your Work...


Dyer have you thought about using the course grade grit.
I use a mix now that is fantastic it has .8mm mixed with the fine.
The courser stuff in the mix cuts quicker and the fine gets it to white metal it's the best of both worlds.
Either that or I just use the course stuff that is 1.5mm it works great on heavy coatings.
I do a lot of chlorinated rubber based paint and the course stuff eats it for breakfast.
The course glass for thick coating removal cannot be beat.
I have tried GMA garnet on that stuff and the glass works 3X better.

Have you cleaned the inside of your cooler a few hidden PSI can be found after a good clean.
That big red one I posted a pic of a while ago would not give me over 90psi at the pot when blasting.
I filled it with Kerosene and let it sit for a couple of days then flushed it with a mild caustic solution and I now get 120psi at the pot while blasting.

Re: Come On, Share Some Pictures Of Your Work...


Ya we have used the course a lot, just find that if I'm not painting it, the customer sees it as still looking dirty.

We switched to the fine a year or two back, with great feed back from our customers.

I give them a choice before starting, explaining the difference and most want to pay a little more to have it clean...?

With this guy I will got corse on some of the trailers just because there big and good looks don't matter.

The Nitrogen cart goes to hospitals and had to look really good.

Good idea Ausi, I blow air through the out side all the time.
Never gave it a thought to flush the inside!
thanks!

Plus it's all plumbed with 1". Think I'm going to plum all pipes from compress to the blast pot with 1-1/2 pipe to get max cfm to the pot.

Just need the time to do it.....lol

Re: Come On, Share Some Pictures Of Your Work...


First time using New Age media they just opened a plant in the west great stuff. Trivetro 70grit is what I have been using for 3 years but the medium New Age cuts faster it's less forgiving you can etch the metal if you aren't careful where the trivetro was really idiot proof I would rather have a faster cutting glass and a little more training for my guy doing the blasting. We only used 10 bags to blast the outside and door jams.
50 PSI #5 Schmidt long nozzle Medium 40/70 New Age Crushed Glass
