The one I got from HF is alright, but you need a real good water separetor. Otherwise it clumps up (the sand I mean).

MobileQuickStrip just gettin started
There are small sand and soda blasters available at most equipment supply places, like Tractor Supply and Northern Tool. However, they are typically small, have small hoses, and are difficult to add required water separators. To be "effective" both in time and materials consumed, they usually need a large compressor with lots of CFM. Most body shops have found that their compressors are not large enough to be effective in most cases, unless only blasting small parts.

For whole vehicles and larger jobs, typically a commercial system is required and can strip a jeep or similar in a few hours. Most commercial systems use a 185 CFM compressor or larger so that the blast pattern can be large enough to be effective when doing whole vehicles.

Sand contians 70% or more silica for cutting power and is harmful to both you and the environment. If you use sand, you must take precautions during and after blasting to keep from inhaling "free silica" left behind from blasting. Sand blasting also generates heat in the panel and can easily warp sheetmetal.

Soda and other medias are safe for you and the environment, do not generate lots of heat, are water soluable, and in the right hands will not warp panels. Soda is also a natural rust inhibitor. Once a panel is stripped, so long as you do not touch it with oily hands and keep the panel under cover, it will take forever before developing slight surface rust (2-3 years in some cases). You can find people to purchase soda and other medias from and people that do soda blasting in your area on the web by typing in soda blasting in most common search engines. There are about 23 different types of Sodium Bicarbonate grades currently available for use, and they all have different uses and costs, so pay attention when pricing bags of the stuff.
