- Eastwood 100-lb. Soda Blaster
Does it matter if my compressor is a single or dual stage pump.
Will soda blasting remove multiple layers of paint? I have a 68 El Camino with about 4 layers of paint. Also, what is needed to convert this unit to abrasive blasting?
Are there any longer leads available for this blaster?
I'm looking to rent a compressor to use with this blaster however, the ones I have found available are 8 CFM and 60 CFM compressors. Will 8 CFM be enough for this unit? I am unsure if the 60 CFM unit can be reduced and if not, is 60 CFM too high?
Is the pressure adjustable?
Im having trouble getting the soda to flow. I followed the trouble shooting but no luck. After disassembling valves at bottom of tank I found many, many, many small beads of metal that look like welding spatter. Whats the best way to clean it all out?
Hi, I need to clean and remove surface rust from a old truck (frame, body, parts, motor...) - Is it ok with the Eastwood 100-lb. Soda Blaster? - What can of media I should use?

(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.
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.
Do not aim the nozzle anywhere other than the substrate you are blasting.
Make sure you disconnect the air line and allow the tank to bleed pressure before opening the fill cap.
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.
1-year mfr's. warranty against defects.
All replacement parts available through Eastwood.
