Havin' A Blast
I sandblasted the glass today. Not without some drama. First, my compressor conked out a few weeks ago. I got real lucky and found a new pump on Craigslist for 55 bucks. Its a 3 cylinder 2 stage unit, brand new Speedair. It probably retailed for 300 dollars. I installed it and it worked great. Then, the other day, the pressure switch went south. So, I treked down to Grainger yesterday and picked up a new one. All went well, so it's finally time to blast. The entire thing took about 15 minutes. After I peeled off the foil tape and wiped it down, I stuck it in the door for a look see. Not too bad.
