As some of you know, I try various things to learn and benefit from. Like my gold plated Colt Govt 45...., etc.
Winter makes me crazy bored so I've been itching to try new things out. My latest is learning how to blast with glass beads for now. I have invested in a decent compressor, guns, hopper, etc.
What I have found online is mostly generic stuff. Big sheet metal work, showing before and afters, etc. But never anything to gauge things on.
The basic things people discuss for nice finishes, is experiment with 80 grit at various psi. Ie, 40-80 or so psi. I have found no samples online.
In the next couple days, I am planning on making up a test sheet. I have a nice shiny sheet of stainless steel. About 3'x4' or so of a decent gauge. I will list and blast lines at different rates of pressure to see what textures come up at different psi.
If anyone has any tips, I'd like to hear them.
Any experiences are welcome.
Edit: Here is the photo. Not able to tell much other than psi unfortunately.
