              It will work ... sort of. Cheap guns off the shelf ($30-$70) are OK to push soda or grit through, but the problem is supplying sufficient air to keep it flowing well. There's a fine line between getting enough air out of the gun and mixing in the right amount of material; too much air, nothing gets lifted, too much soda or grit and you may as well spend your time down the beach building castles instead ... Proper blasting requires LOTS of pressure - 60 psi+ min, continuously to flow well. On a 3hp 17cfm 50L compressor, using a decent sized barrel style blaster, you'll have trouble maintaining pressure at the gun, and may run as low as 20psi, which will mean many months of Sundays to get the job done. How do I know all this ? I've done it.

              If anyone wants something blasted, PM me.

                        Not a bad idea.
                        I just bought a 1.6L ultrasonic heated jewellery cleaner off ebay, $230 but cleans the f*ck outa dirty stuff AND the best part, turn it on and walk away.

                        Looks similar to this one vv

                            Handy for any soft metal engine parts, as even walnut shell or other soft grit can become embedded in the metal, coming free when you least want it. Bicarb simply washes away



                            Also: Ultrasonic cleaner, nice... What cleaning fluid does it use?

                              I've just bought some bits to make one of these, but wondering how something like this might do the job:
                              Air Sand Blast Gun 600ml - Supercheap Auto

                              I've got no problems with air. Big industrial scale compressor at hand.
