Spot Blaster Operation & Maintenance
The Spot Blaster quickly cleans small spots down to bare metal, preparing the surface for repair and repainting. Each pull of the trigger cleans a quarter-sized spot. An option of five flexible adapters – 11/2” spot (supplied with kit), 1/2” spot (useful for cleaning spark plugs), edge, outside corner, inside corner—assures a perfect fit, even in the tightest work areas. Because the Spot Blaster recirculates up to 98% of the blast media, each refill gives over 50 “blasts.” Spot blasting also minimizes damage to glass, body trim and mechanical parts commonly caused by the “blast media storm” effect.
Although the Spot Blaster collects and recirculates most of the blast media, it is possible that some media (as well as paint or rust from the work surface) could escape and cause injury if proper techniques are not used. Remember:
Ready to Use
The Spot Blaster is ready to use. The two most important elements to be supplied by you are a reliable air supply (install a 1/4” NPT air fitting, commonly available) and dry blast media. Your kit includes 3 lbs. of glass bead media.
To operate the Spot Blaster, press the rubber workhead/hood flush to the surface so that as you blast you can feel the rubber tip “float along.” The blast gun can be moved in any direction while keeping the hood on the blast surface. Sometimes, a two-handed method works well—hold the spot blaster in one hand and guide the hood with your other hand.
Normal wear and tear on the Spot Blaster is to be expected, depending on the usage, the abrasive (blast media) used, the nozzle size, and other factors. Since the Spot Blaster is intended for intermittent use, wear rates will likely be very low.
