Default Anyone with a Sandblaster in RI

Hey guys,

I recently picked up a set of 17" wheels that need a real good cleaning before I ship them off to the Powder Coater and was wondering if anyone has a sand blaster they would be willing to let me use. I'd be happy to give you a couple of bucks, beer, pizza or a combination of all three.

I'm located in Warwick RI and would be willing to travel up to 1.5 hours.


Please let me know via PM or just respond in the thread

Thanks

I bought an air compressor off a guy in Foster who does sandblasting as a side job. Not sure on his prices. PM me if you want his phone number.

Thanks for the help but unfortunately he doesn't have a blaster big enough to fit my wheels.

I have a sand blaster but I am not sure I could get a 17" wheel in the door.

The opening is about 20x9.

Don't most powder coaters do media blasting?

Most of them do but if it was easily accessible from another local member / I could save a few bucks I was willing give it a shot.
