Thread: New service offered: VAPOR BLASTING

    New service offered: VAPOR BLASTING

    Greetings everyone
    I purchased a vapor blasting machine to recondition parts needed for my car's restorations
    Vapor blasting leaves a nice satin finish on aluminum and steel.The process uses a slurry of water and media. It is quite gentle and does not transfer heat which could cause warping.
    I am offering the service out to the community
    I charge $65/hour. The cleaner you send me the part, the less work I have to do. Translation, less money out of your pocket.
    Feel free to PM me or give me a call to discuss if this service is applicable for your present needs
    Cheers
    Mitch

    Nice work Mitch....

    Here's an idea, make yourself a simple business card and put an ad in the next ESSES...

    How about getting paint off of rubber weatherstrip? And maybe it would even soften it up?

    We have one at our shop. Makes aluminum parts look like new. We dont take in outside work so no competition here. Ive used it extensively for my morini motorcycle restoration.
    A part isn't purchased until paid.

    Have you tried a Bendix fuel pump yet or do they just need replating?

    Think kinder, gentler form of media blasting. Returns things to their original base surface appearance; maybe even nicer.
    So yes, a gutted Bendix pump housing would need replating.

    Yea, it removes zinc or cad plating. Works great on old tools since it takes off the rust but doesn’t change the steel surface. Steal rusts quickly without treatment afterword but aluminum actually holds its look much better since it micro peens the surface.
