Reinforcements Imminent

Post by tinweasel » Fri May 08, 2020 6:58 pm

I reached an impasse on the Puch restoration. I realized I was lacking the necessary tools.
I spent an entire day freeing up this corner of the garage, new tools are on order.
Any guesses?

I have longed for these tools for decades...
Now I can get the chrome off of these rims. Onwards and upwards! 👍🏻

Nice! A friend of mine picked up a similar blasting cabinet recently. I am very envious! I would be curious to know how well it works for you.

Happy blasting!

Noel, I’ll let you know. Prob won’t have a chance to use it until next week.
I looked at a similar model; Mastercraft from Canadian Tire, but the reviews were not very favourable, issues with it’s flat bottom and poor media distribution from the bottom of the unit.
I think this one has more of a valley designed into the bottom of the unit, which I think will translate into better media collection on the bottom, and better redistribution.
