Borrowed one from a friend...I think it was a harbor freight unit. Took off paint and crud but didnt phase rust at all. Also is expensive and makes a mess and you will get residue all over the place .... makes a big dust cloud. I went back to strip disks and other means. Just my .02. Regards.

I will not allow one in the shop..My rule is sand where you can and blast where you must..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I made one for a couple of dollars,and bought my soda from the farm store,quite cheap. The soda will not remove rust. I used mine on a pair of motorcycle carbs that had been stored for many years,They came out looking brand new.I also did an edelbrock performer that was quite corroded,and it looked like it just came out of the box.
