    Details

    Eastwood "Master Blaster" Dual Blaster lets you switch "on-the-fly" between soda and abrasive media, or a combination of both! Eastwood's exclusive combination soda blaster and abrasive blaster features our patent-pending "Mixing Valve" that lets you switch instantly between full-flow soda media for gentle-to-mild cleaning or paint removal on stainless, chrome, aluminum or fiberglass, and full-flow aggressive abrasive media for removing even the heaviest rust from frames and suspension components. Also allows infinite "on-the-fly" mixing of the two medias for controlled removal of paint or rust/corrosion on virtually any surface. A must for the serious restorer!
    • Switch between medias in seconds, or mix at an infinite ratio between the two
    • On-the-fly switching or mixing saves you money and cuts blasting times in half
    • Includes extra nozzles and moisture separator

    About Eastwood Master Blaster-Dual Blaster

    Use soda blast supplies to remove coatings on delicate substrates such as fiberglass, chrome or stainless...then easily switch on-the-fly to harsher abrasives such as crushed glass, glass bead or aluminum oxide to blast through heavy scale, rust or multiple coatings. It's a must-have tool for restoration and maintenance shops where rust and paint removal are issues on multiple surfaces such as fiberglass, steel, aluminum, etc. Each of the fully welded, powder-coated tanks holds 100 lbs. of abrasive media (75 lbs. of soda), and works on as little as 10 cfm at 90 psi. 10-ft.-long, heavy-wall blast hose. Imported.

    I purchased this about 2 years ago and have used it for various projects. The specs state it requires 10 cfm at 90 psi. My compressor will put out over 12 cfm and go up to 150 psi however it really doesn't have the air behind it to make this blaster work well. It will do OK for small projects but don't expect to use it on a car restoration especially on rust or more than 1 coat of paint. Avoid it unless you can get a lot more air through it than what Eastwood states.
    Unfortunately it is difficult to use. (Posted on 10/9/13)

    Since I started using this blaster I have had constant problems with getting media to come out on a regular basis. It works for a few seconds and then I have to keep shaking the unit to get more. Then other times there is so much media coming through that the hose is to full and it just pours out on the ground. Had to replace one valve already and I believe another is bad as well and I have only use the unit twice since I bought it in May. Very discouraging. I have been using Black Beauty and soda to strip paint off an old hand water pump. Never though it would be an all day job.

    I upgraded my compressor dryer prior to using based on other reviews so no moisture issues. Took awhile to tune flows but was able to get a repeatable setting for both soda and grit. Did not try to mix medias and doubt I ever will. I used the lower cost 60/40 Black Diamond media without issue. Small pots make it easy to store but not suitable for larger jobs. Did what I needed it to do well. A good tool.

    Used this for eight solid hours. no clogs, no problems at all.
    You need dry air, 5hp 80 gallon air compressor, copper air lines with drip legs, water traps, desiccant dryer 2 quart and you can blast all day.
    this blaster works great!

    i really tried to make this thing work
    the lines were hooked up wrong from the factory. after re-routing them, it still was an issue.
    you need three arms and three legs to make it work. keep shaking it, it'll blow some media.
    so, with one hand hold the gun, with the other shake the canisters. good luck

    Cheaply made in china. Fittings do not last because of the cheap quality. This is an outstanding idea but it just doesnt work . Sent mine back ....had to wait till my money was refunded to write an honest review......the positive reviews were probably written by Eastwood employees.......buy a Brut, much better quality and it works like it is supposed to...
    wasted alot of time and $ (Posted on 9/29/11)

    I read the reviews. I watched the videos, My compressor is 125lbs/15 CFM. I have never been able to get the Dual Blaster to work consistantly more than 10 seconds. Too many variables which are constantly changing: Throttle valve, media valve, available air pressure - as pressure goes down in your tank, the valves need to be constantly adjusted. Ambiant air humidity is also a big problem. I finally took my sheet metal to a pro - He chuckled when I told him I had tried to use Eastwood's blaster, Said I was one of many.
    Pretty good blaster, Better than most (Posted on 5/30/11)

    I like good quality tools. There is a place for cheap tools but when you invest in shop equipment you want it to last. I purchased this blaster 6 months ago and have had very good results so far. Yes the valves could be a little stronger but if you take care of your tools you shouldn’t have a problem. My only concern was that the user’s manual states that you MUST only use 80 grit and higher with this blaster. This is not mentioned in the website. In fact the website states you can use “any abrasive you choose”. I called Eastwood and their tech confirmed the 80 grit was due to the valves. This would really limit you from purchasing the more affordable abrasives from Harbor or Tracker Supply at 60 – 40 grit. It’s not easy finding grit in 80 or higher here in NC and if you do its $25-$35. At the mercy of cost, I did give the Tracker Supply “Black Diamond” Grit a try. It states a mix of 80/40 grit. I pumped five 50lbs bags through the blaster without a clog so I guess I’ll be okay. The Diamond Grit is great on rust at only $7.99 per 50lbs. Maybe Eastwood can add some clarification on this. Overall…great blaster.
