    Hello guys,
    I do a lot of wheel work, and now I have bought a big screw compressor(15 hp) so I can do the blasting myself.
    What media do you recommend for this kind of job(stripping the factory finish)?
    I have used silica sand(0.03″/ 0.8mm mesh) and it is slow and dusty. Al oxide(0.023″/0.6 mm mesh) is faster but on some stuff it is slow like hell.
    I have the option of angular steel grit (G80 grit). Will it be faster than aluminum oxide? Will the surface be OK ?
    Thanks and keep on the good work.
