I have used this on several carburators, one was on the tractor, with very good results. Ted

Nice job, Yogie! Couple questions for you though. Was that one box of baking soda enough to do the whole carb? Could a person set up a catch basin to catch some of the baking soda after it gets blasted, or does it pretty much all go into the air like a powder?

Mike on my soda blaster I ask my wife to buy some at Sams Club or what every kind of box store you have that carries this kind of stuff. She brought home a bag of soda 13.5 LB. I didn't know thay had that big.

I wonder if one of those little hand held sand blasters from Harbour Freight would work? I bought one and never used it. I'll give it a try and report back. It would be nice to be able to walk around my tractor and pin-point things I want to clean up.

Mike - there is no reason it wouldn't work. The soda would neutralize any acid present too.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

How would this work on regular ol' cast parts?

Al, I know Videodoc has had at least one of his demo Cubs soda blasted. However, the rig they use for that has a BIG compressor, and they're using 50 lb bags of soda. I think it would be okay on small pieces, but still slower than sandblasting.

I would make sure to cover up my battery caps real well too. Wouldn't want too much soda in my acid :lol:

I bet this would work GREAT for the hydraulic pumps when cleaning up before a rebuild, or just to clean one up.
