Use baking soda Ed! Look into it...its less abrasive than sand and you will need to adjust the psi accordingly so you don't over do it!

just that stuff pictured? If so I can do it for U. Glassbead. If more probably not. I just can't do too many as it screws up the glassbead as we only do non magnetic stuff in ours and it will contaminate the glassbead, a few won't hurt. P.

Thanks Paul ... i wouldn't take the chance .. I was told the paint on these pieces is probably pre lead paint .. The guy that got these for me said he's never seen the staples with them ..

If you want to take a ride to Wrentham, I've got a large cabinet blaster and will do them for free, should only take a few minutes anyway.
