i had to build a 30x40 building , 16x25 blast room , used compressor 4k , blast pot 4600 , suit , nova hood , rotisserie , big shop vac , tables made from 3/8 expanded metal to tie parts on . it got expensive quick . it is more for my work than anything else. you'll find once you start charging the going rate the customers dry up fast. search this forum , all anyone is interested in is how cheap they can do it . they will destroy a body before they will pony up the money to have it done right.

fyi a barrel of plastigrit is about 900 bucks . diesel is about 3.00 a gal. my rate is 100 an hr for blasting. good luck with it.

and the state WILL get involved

and don't get me started on soda ......
