Default Re: Sandblasting

Sandblasting may be OK for something like the outside of a tractor axle-casing but it's really much to aggressive for anything you're likely to find in a radio, as others have observed. A lot of places can do "soda blasting" which uses baking-soda and is a lot kinder to the underlying material than sand or grit.

I've also heard of blasting being done using finely ground nut-shells as the abrasive!
