    FYI - Just saw youtube of Eastwood dustless media blasting. Its a hose tha sucks up glass beads from a 5 gallon bucket and attachment that connects to your home gas powered pressure washer.
    They sell the glass beads looks really slick. Anybody try this yet?

    I'm interested in hearing the results. I used the coal slag Media blaster with good results. It makes a hell of mess and moister is a devil with it. The Dustless pressure washer I saw uses sand not glass. Not sure if it matters. Thanks for posting

    Its dustless - no dust. You still have the media, removed stuff, and water to deal with. We used a similar system (much bigger) in a shipyard due to the environmental impact. It works well and Eastwood's does not need an air supply so you could do it anywhere with a gas powered pressure washer. Eventually the shipyard went to a vacuum system that collected the effluent.

    If you do the math on time spent sanding. Cheaper to dip the car. After you metal condition the car. It’s PRIME TIME. Then when the cars in the booth getting painted. There is no sand. No Dust No Dirt. No Buff. Hmmmmm. Wala.

    Used that "dustless system " Media injected with a pressure washer way back when I had my house painting business in the mid 90's. always worked well. Heck of a mess to clean up after shooting out 2000 pounds of sand. Id strip paint off red brick fire place chimneys and porches before re pointing all the mortar joints and strip old garage doors that had 50+ years of paint on them.
