Bead blasting vs Vapor blasting
I'm trying to get to 500 subscribers by the end of 2016, so if you liked my video, consider subbing. Thanks! If you need quality vapor blasting, go to my website, http://www.arnoldsdesign.com and contact me for a quote. This video shows shows one example I had come through the shop recently, and of what you might expect from a bead blasting job versus a vapor blasting on the same cast aluminum part. The bead blasting was done by a customer before it was sent to me, so I do not know what mesh size glass beads were used, nor do I know what nozzle sizes, or pressures were used. This shouldn't be taken as a representation of all bead blasted finishes. Some are similar, while some I've seen are brighter. Finishes vary depending on desired outcomes, materials, and operator experience. Vapor blasting can bring out the beauty in many metals, including, aluminum, steel, and brass. . Btw, if you liked the video, please give it a thumbs up. Comment, and subscribe, too. Thanks!!!

$15 DIY Soda Blaster
After watching pete from south west rod and customs he was explaining VW Steve had built a sodablaster himself at home. So i went on the lookout for this magical device. And from the pictures and short forum posts this is what i came up with. It works well, but does need improvement, and on top of that you cant reuse the baking soda once is been fired. 1KG could most probably happily do the the out side of a carbie. I'm always open to questions and suggestions.
