Soda blasting results ++++

Mon Aug 15, 2011 7:32 pm

I read about this a while back and decided to give it a try today after work. Found a short piece of feed line at the shop and I picked up a .75 cent box of baking soda.
Boy was I ever amazed with the results, the carb looks like new again.
Took only a few mins. and yes I recommend some type of face cover for breathing.

I also believe this could be done very easy while the carb's on the tractor...
Very pleased, shocked and amazed. :D :{_}:

Seeing is believing, but it is hard for me to understand how a medium that feels so soft in texture can clean so effectively.

I went over it several times when only one swip was all that was needed. I was amazed that the gas stains, dirt and all just disappeared.

Mark, we run around 150 lbs but while doing this job I held the air blower about half open, it really doesn't take much pressure to do the job.

I highly recommend geting some type of breathing cover for protection. Even the cheap rubber band toss aways would help a lot.

Any type of blow nozzle will work, I picked that one up at Walmart.
