Questions & Answers

What is the compatibility of this with Harbor Freight blast cabinets?

The blasting cabinet is intended for the use of this item.

Does this item have the option of being machine washed or dried? Weighted blankets are something I was thinking of using it for. Is it necessary for the beads to have a round shape?

These are the type of weights I bought to weigh dolls, and they are too fine to be contained in any fabric, not even nylon stockings. You will not be able to use it.

Do you think this would be a good method for reborn doll weighting?

A blaster is meant to be used with the media. It is not recommended that this be used to weight down dolls.

The glass beads seem to be crushed glass, but is it true glass bead? The beads I need must be true beads (i.e. Do you prefer rounded particles over sharp ones)?

Glass beads that are rounded would be ideal.

It is not really the details that matter, but they do matter
3/5

There was a light breeze. I prefer the beads from this company. They are better than those advertised as such and work just fine. My curiosity is why the sellers of this stuff pack it in garbage bags scented with some kind of fragrance. This makes a bead that comes in the shape of a cone Some kind of smell is emanating from here. Can you find a 'package' that is unscented? I'd give you 4 stars if you put a label on the bucket so I'd know what's inside It would get you 5 stars if you put a label on the bucket, but product identification is just an extra touch This beads work reasonably well, I've blasted a lot of stuff with them and it produced a nice luster. This is
- It was one star less for being under weight by about five pounds. Please note - I only gave this one star because the scent reminded me of an LA woman,*fr>- I give you 1 star because you forgot to label your product.
I give you 2 stars because it is what it should have been supposed to be.

Cleaning my aluminum motorcycle engine and transmission cases was so much easier with this media
5/5

The media was particularly effective for cleaning the aluminum cases and parts of my motorcycle engine and transmission. Besides removing rust, it leaves a nice satin finish while also removing embedded grime and dirt. Preparing a surface in this way is useful if you plan to polish it finer for a glossy / highly polished appearance.

This is a great cleaner/strapper for aluminum aircraft
4/5

It does what it says it will. The water is free from The picture shows a plastic pail, but my product didn't come in a pail like that. The box that mine arrived in was made of cardboard and heavy plastic. Aircraft aluminum responds very well to this solution.

Even after the price increase, it's still a deal I received it in a small box brought to me by my postal worker in place of the picture showing a big plastic pale

You did a great job
5/5

This is the tool I use to blast aluminum parts. You did a great job. Blasting aluminum parts with this machine is what I use to prepare them for Compared to sand products, I don't use as much of this. Anodizing or ceramicote can be applied after cleaning and after the finish is dry.

The product was purchased to make a sugar glass look on a lampshade, and it turned out well.

This is a great purchase! It's hard to imagine a sandblasting cabinet without this product
5/5

I have tried an upgrade from a local store, and it works fine, but not as well as this. There is no clogging and the material is easy to clean!.
