Eastwood Soda Blaster USA is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from At this point I'm rather disturbed. No assembly instructions, wheels don't turn when mounted with bolts, nuts and washers provided. Haven't even tried it yet, just trying to get over the shock of having to Mickey mouse a supposedly professional soda blaster together. I was forced to Mickey mouse different together trying to get it to look like the picture, no instructions! Can't recommend the shoddy lack of instructions and having to take apart fixtures to come up with something that looks like picture. Don't have any idea where even to affix my air line.

Will this unit suffice for removing soot from fire damaged roof rafters, deck, etc?

Asked by: Handyman 1966
This unit would be able to work well to blast soot with a soda media. The blast hose is only 10Ft long though. If you need a longer hose you would want to consider our 11804 heavy duty blaster. This has a 25 foot hose.

Says has abrasive kit included, beads, aluminum oxide, these media have to be different size than soda particles. I'm going to need harsher abrasive media for rust. Examples of nozzles for beads, aluminum oxide, crushed glass etc. ? Thanks wileysnkskns

Asked by: wileysnkskns
This kit has an abrasive manifold allowing you to run blast medias as coarse as 80 grit. Aluminum oxide is great for cutting rust. Nozzle size should be chosen based on CFM consumption.

Can you give examples for tip sizes required for certain media, just bought your $699 soda blaster and I see you have six or so sizes of ceramic tips, I want to soda blast paint but I have some serious rusty sections to clean up. Thanks for assistance.

Asked by: wileysnkskns
The size of the nozzle does not matter for the media. The two things that the nozzle size would effect would be how much media comes out to work faster and second the amount of air consumed by the blaster.

I'm new to this and really don't know much, I'm looking to sand down an old truck and then repaint it. There is lot's of rust. I'm looking to buy a blaster but im not sure which media to use and which grit. what do you recommend?

Asked by: Kline
Some of the best options we have available for paint and rust removal would be the Aluminum Oxide or Silicon Carbide abrasive medias. Another less aggressive option would be the glass bead..

Hi, what is the maximum PSI this unit can be safely ran at and what would be the corresponding CFM requirement?

Asked by: RyanL
90 CFM is the pressure required. CFM will depend on the nozzle size used. As you go up in nozzle size your CFM required to operate at the same pressure will also go up significantly.

How is this product for removing bottom paint from fiberglass boats?

Asked by: Tom A
This blaster will work well for that purpose, and any other where you have a large area to blast. You need to make sure you have sufficient air flow being put out by a large compressor and you should have no problems with any paint removal you'd want to do.

FAQs

(Q) Why use bicarbonate soda media?
(A) Soda will not harm glass, plastics, fiberglass or chrome surfaces. It's used to remove paint coatings from the vehicle surface without etching the surface or warping the metal like more aggressive media would. It's the best way to strip fiberglass Corvettes, boats or aftermarket hoods. Also used to remove paint from urethane and SMC-type bumper fascias.

(Q) Can this unit be used with more aggressive media?
(A) Yes, this unit can be converted to blast standard abrasive medias such as crushed glass, aluminum oxide, etc. by using the abrasive kit included.


Safety / Instructions

Bicarbonate soda blasting is much safer than traditional abrasives, and more gentle to the metal or substrate you're blasting. However, you must still protect yourself from the dust and, more importantly, the particles of paint, corrosion or scale that become airborne during the blasting operation.

Use a properly fitted dust mask or respirator, safety glass or safety shield, plus heavy gloves, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt to protect exposed skin. Use our 50097 Soda-Blasting Protection Kit for complete protection.

Make sure you disconnect the air line and allow the tank to bleed pressure before opening the fill cap.

Do not aim the nozzle anywhere other than the substrate you are blasting.

Check the condition of the nozzle after every hour of blasting and replace once wear is visible or the blast stream becomes ineffective.

Before each use, inspect the tank for any signs of corrosion. Make sure the rubber hoses are not dry-rotted, cracked, split or show any other signs of wear or abrasion from use or storage. Do not use the unit until damage components are repaired. Call Eastwood at 800-544-5118 for replacement components.

Make sure the deadman valve is operating properly by depressing the valve lever and releasing; it must close over the nozzle under its own spring pressure. If not, do not use the deadman valve until the spring or obstruction is repaired.

Only use fresh Eastwood-brand Bicarbonate Soda Media to assure trouble-free blasting and quick paint removal.
