    Well, John; the way the internet works and the fact that you now have this large photograph in circulation with the words BLAST TENT so prominently displayed, I'd be on the lookout for some black helicopters with large searchlights hovering overhead around 2AM! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        What size air compressor do you have, John?


        what about eye protection?

            It works on as little as 7 CFM, mine is 21 and unlike the sand blaster, the compressor keeps up. The baking soda is not a salt as far as I know and at 80 PSI it you don't seem to need eye protection other then the glasses. Nothing blows back, you can't even feel it on your bare hands.
            It will not remove rust or putty though, it's very gentle, barely polishes stainless, and harmless on glass.
            We did switch to a real painting style mask after the pictures. We put a tarp floor down in the tent and recycled the soda after filtering.

                "It will not remove rust or putty though,"

                So are you using it just for paint removal then?

                    Yes, we'll switch to the sand blaster for a few spots like the rust blisters on the rain gutters.
