Soda blasting aside, I have a chronic problem with moisture since my shop is only a few miles from Cape Henry, where the Atlantic meets the Chesapeake Bay and is bordered by the Great Dismal Swamp to the south just for good measure. I drain buckets of H2O from my compressor in the summertime and the blasting cabinet is almost unusable in August.
I found the Franzinator a compelling idea and collected a number of informational links in my blog at http://www.route60garage.com/
just to keep track of them.
Franzę is also quite the prolific author of some good HOWTO info at http://z6.invisionfree.com/ToolBoxTa...p?showforum=28
I had the chance yesterday to use a friend's Eastwood soda blaster to clean up some vintage auto trim. It did a nice job except for the problems with moisture. I would not want to use it on anything large; yes it would be a PITA.
Thanks for the info, Franzę.
