In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web.

I've got quite a few fittings ready to be drilled and finished. Just picked up a hand-held grinder/sander to finish the edges of them.


Was wondering what others were using to blast the surface rust off of the fittings before coating with primer ? The mecca of all tools cheap, Harbor Freight, has a table-top blaster for about $100.00. I was thinking that this, and a 50 lb bag of beadswould do the trick for me.


Comments.. suggestions ?
