    For all the little parts and pieces to prep for paint.

    Any recomendation on a cabinet and what type of media I shold consider?

    I almost bought this one and thought I would seek the collective knowledge from all my friends here at NastyZ:
    Northern tool for 180 bucks (+30 shipping)

    [​IMG]
    And 25# of black beaty media 15 bucks (+15 shipping :eek:):

    I'v recently realized I need to detail a LOT of small pieces, including me nuts;)

    Search TP Tools on google. They make better stuff and have all of the extra toys.

    TP tools has a nice one for only 40 bucks more (20 cab and 20 shipping)

    Harbor frieght has a decent cabinet for 2 bones but its overweight shipping adds 50 bucks to the 12 dollar shipping. Is this the one you got Doug?

    Wire wheel is the worst, it makes deep groves.


    Media blasting gets rid of the upper layer of skin only.

    Just don't point in one spot for too long.
