Re: The Phoenix Project

Here's my modified blasting cabinet and I am now running glass bead media together with water in it:

Here's what kind of surface it will produce on cast aluminum, this is obviously the side of this T5 Hurst shifter I've blasted:

And here's the other side:

Another thing I've always wanted to do is zinc plating which actually is as easy as described in this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-PtnwtOR24

Bolt to the left is what I started with, second from the left is after wet blasting, next is after zinc plating and to the right is the result after zinc plating plus wet blasting it again to get a slightly polished surface.
