Gonna start blasting grousers tomorrow - I’m concerned about getting some of them apart.

If you can soak them in OFF ROAD diesel fuel

If you can immerse them in a tray and let soak......


Good luck

GREAT Thread!

Just as an FYI, some years ago I bought a larger blasting cabinet for media blasting parts. It has been a great investment as it makes short work of removing rust/paint/scale/corrosion, etc.

https://www.tptools.com/Skat-Blast-S...-Cabinets.html

I had started with a small Harbor Freight unit and it was very marginal (better than nothing, but not by much). The larger one was substantially more expensive, but has absolutely been worth it. As the saying goes "good tools are an investment, not a purchase".

Luckily I’ve got access to this big cabinet - it’s knocking things out pretty quickly - but it’s still gonna be a long run! More fun than rollers though........

RRose, or anyone,

Guess I've never read or thought about it really, since I don't have a pontoon machine, but whats the best treatment for those after sandblasting? Powerboat, epoxy, POR, oil, bare steel?

I think you’re gonna get multiple answers to this question - I am using a product called Steel-It on my grousers and rollers. It’s big in the off road community, really tough and can be welded right over. Seemed like a good choice.
