What the *@#$&%!!! is soda blasting

I have seen soda blasting advertised in many phone books but have never found a place that sells it. What is it? Is it just sand blasting or glass bead blasting or is it baking soda? Don't laugh people use walnut shells as blast media! Anyway, is it worth looking for?

Zach...here is an article from our Knowledge Base on the different types of blasting media. Check it out HERE The Knowledge Base is a very useful tool for almost any question you may have on every aspect of an automobile. Do a search through it for various items and prepare yopurself to have room for quite a bit of Bookmarks. Good luck on stripping your car.

we had a soda blaster at Jasper Engines set up. I used it a lot. It was pretty good at removing gaskets and rust without pitting the metal. Just another blasting agent in the war on grime. powder like baking soda in a sand blaster

thanks a million Kevin, so I assume soda blasting is better than sand blasting for rust removal of sheet metal? Where can I find bulk ie 100LB baggs of baking soda to use?

OK Zach...check here and here and here and try here too You will probably have to e-mail for prices. Also check out your local NAPA or something along that line to see if they might have a source to purchase.
