Okay, I am very surprised that nowhere in Pensacola, Florida can I buy blasting media!!! I am even more surprised that 4 of the 6 places I called suggested that I use sand. Is it just me or didn’t I read several stories on this little problem called silicosis???? Not to mention the warnings that are plastered all over the bags of sand itself. Is it okay to blast with regular sand if I use some fairly subsantial mask/respirator???? My wife is a Respiratory Therapist so I need some facts or blasting with sand aint gonna happen! :rolleyes: I certainly wouldn’t mind buying all my blasting media from Eastwood, but, UPS charges could get EXPENSIVE really quickly. HELP!!
