Not that I doubt you, but I would think the heat from the friction of the high power sand would crack it? I have read about that method though, I read mixed results. I went this route because the startup cost of sandblasting equipment, taping off my own booth, etc was way more than the @$200 I spent with the rotozip and bit.
