metalmeltr if you got the small handheld gun the guy was telling you a lie, that gun is not for soda it is for abrasives such as aluminum oxide, ground glass, silicon carbide,walnut shells or plastic media. If you want to you could put plastic media in that gun and blast your bumpers without a problem. If you still want to use soda get the other blaster.

930dreamer Sorry, you can't use arm & hammer soda. You need to buy commercial soda.

Well, I don't have the patience to hand sand the bumpers, and I'm worried I'd get impatient or not pay close enough attention with my DA and sand a hole through the bumper!

BTW, I got too excited to leave that little spot gun in it's package, so I opened it up and gave it a shot with some Arm & Hammer. All it did was make a dusty mess So I guess I need to figure out if I need special soda, or if I just have the thing set up wrong, or what

Soda Blaster question

Hello,

I have a pair of urethane bumpers I need to strip. I was going to but this:

and soda blast them.

When I went to buy it, I saw this:

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=95793

They HF guy told me that the second one would work fine for soda, so I got it.

So, so any of you know if that little gun will work OK? What's the extra $80 buying me, just some more capacity and the water filter and regulator?

For something the size of bumpers would I be better off with the more expensive unit?

Thanks for any answers; I know nothing about media blasters or blasting.
