1- Shotblasting involves firing shot, glass, sand or lead at a metal surface to remove all paint and rust.
2 – it cannot be done in the rain, snow, damp, or when the shotblaster doesn’t fancy it or wants a fag.
3 – the shotblaster wears what looks like a diving hood and point a gun that fires the blasting material at the metal. It then bounces back all over the floor.
4- the surface revealed is dullish grey like zinc and needs to be covered immediately in shop primer (more on that world of hell later) to stop it re-rusting.
5 – it is heinously expensive
It is basically microdermabrasion for boats.
A little video of the work in progress. Can’t work out how to get the sound working so a little pointless. When the helmet is on and the compressor is running, you can’t hear him moan!!
