Sandblasted Vice.... what to 'coat' with

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Sandblasted Vice.... what to 'coat' with

Postby Buzzard Wing » Tue Nov 29, 2011 7:00 pm

I have a load of stuff to be sandblasted (fast hitch, fenders, rims) and happened into an old friend that wants his large jaw, ancient vice sandblasted. (made in CT, forget the manufacturer)

I was a bit concerned about priming it and he said to leave it and he will 'oil' it. I am relived that I have one (actually several) thing less to paint. Not many rules around here, but I will not sleep till everything the paint (or rust) is off of is primed..... Makes for a long night sometimes, but I know how quickly bare metal will rust, especially in the 'damp' neighborhood I call home.

Any suggestions on what, if anything I should treat the vice parts with?? The vice is going to be a treasured possession of a very good and longtime friend and I would hate to hand him back a rusty one.

Thanks.

Maybe ask him if he would rather you or he oil it...while explaining the flash rust issue. :big give up:

I have no plans to do anything to it.... except get it to him as quickly as possible. I have a pretty good variety of oil around (including 8 gallons to the city 'oil igloo' in the back of the truck). I always paint, so just a bit scared about leaving it naked. I will keep it out of the weather.

I took a wire brush to my rotating 'pipe fitter' vise and painted it Farmall red.

Kind of an extreme.....but could you do something like a shrink wrap on it right after blasting? Or would it condensate under the plastic? :?:

John, in southern New England, we've never heard of low to medium humidity! That's Larry's problem, with storing unpainted metal. Ed

there is a product called fluid film, its an oily, wax type coating used on equipment during storage to prevent rust. A lot of the guys i know use it to coat the under side of their truck during the plowing season.

Any rust after sandblasting can easily be removed with Phosphoric acid, the same stuff used in body shops. Wipe on, rinse off. Then I would paint the vice with POR15, that stuff is awesome.

Something about this thread bothered me when it was posted and I couldn't figure out what it was. It finally hit me today.
You can't sandblast vices!!!!! You can sandblast vises but not vices! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
OK - I feel much better now! :wink:

Can't sandblast them, you have to whitewash them then reassess the situation.

The load from the sandblaster was pretty huge. Fenders, rear rims and a fast hitch. And the vise :oops: (Notice I spelled it right.)

The sandblast guy does great work and the heap took me till almost 3 am to prime, exciting Friday night in the big city. Still not going to change the rule about primed before I sleep. The vise got covered with a towel and was delivered last night. The forging/casting didn't seem to get any rust on it. I should have put a tape on it to see how long it is. But you can see against the Fast Hitch or fenders that it has a long travel. It saw some use in it's day, look at the bar to tighten the jaw.

Thanks for all the tips!

BW, what's the channel on the fast hitch for? BTW, I have 4 of those things (vise) and they all could use a new suit of working clothes. One bought by my Dad, one from a friend, one from the transfer station, and the last one originally worked in the former Cannon Mills Co.

No idea Dan. There is also a piece of angle iron going back from the seat mount bolts that I can't figure out. I think that Cub had some odd stuff attached at the front end (axle tube) too. I couldn't see where the piece would interfere with anything and didn't feel like cutting it off... so there it is.
