Get rid of old paint

NEED to spruce up machinery paintwork in the workshop this winter?

An air operated Sand Blaster has been added to Spaldings Truecraft tools and equipment range which is intended for medium sized machinery refurbishment where old paint and rust need to be removed before renovation.

The Sand Blaster is designed to leave an etched finish for immediate treatment and can work with an air compressor supplying 10cfm plus. The machine is available with a 2m hose and 50cm lance.

Manufactured to CE standards, it can hold 9kg of grit, says Spaldings. The unit costs £150. (01522-500600, www.spaldings.co.uk)
