new blaster

Post by firemedic » Wed Aug 31, 2011 6:12 pm

Just got back from HFT w/a 20 lb. pressurized blaster, less refilling ("more taste," hahaha). Gonna use it on a circa 1949 Delta made-in-Milwaukee table saw cabinet base I've owned for about 30 years, and it was older than that when I bought it from a Miami water-bottling plant. Lotta surface rust. The saw is like a small version of the venerable Delta 'Unisaw.' All cast-iron & steel, I think the only thing on it not made of ferrous metal is the aftermarket crosscutting guide. The thing weighs probably 300 lbs. & has a 'split-phase' motor (110-220V).

Oh yeah, and gonna use the pressurized blaster on my stable of deserving Yamahas.

Man! Id love to have a saw like that.I've got an aluminum saw that won't rust,but you can't beat the stability of a 300 pounder.If the motor doesn't work at first,clean it,then you can get it rebrushed at an industrial rebuilder.I used to be a carpenter[commercial],and still have door making tools to make panel doors,etc.I used to have one of those grey 20 gallon or whatever size,and it did well.I hooked up a 100# propane tank inline as a storage tank for the air pressure,so the smaller blasters.I want to get the 2 cylinder compressor they have there,and hook it up to my '41 ford 9n tractor,and use it when I need lots of air,just hook up the u-joint coupler,start up the motor and have all the air I need.I have a generator for it and when the power goes out,I just back up,hook up and it puts out 20kv's. lha

My local farm supply store sells 50 pound bags of 'sodium bicarbonate' (baking soda) for $14.

It has many uses, including as a supplement to certain types of cattle feed.

My only concern with the 50# bag is water intrusion / contamination during storage.
