Is Home Depot really for the

The same goes for Lowes too.

So I went to Home Depot to get some sand blasting media. Guess what. They don't sell the media but they do sell the cheap little syphon feed guns. That seems odd to sale the tool but not the supplies. Then again they sell Oxy/Acetylene torches but the don't sell the gases.

Going to Lowes didn't yield anything either.

So what about Northern Tool or Tractor Supply Co? Sure they sell it but the inexpensive stuff they sell is too abrasive for my rig, and the stuff that will work in my unit costs $25/50lb bag. Holy cow Batman!

I've got a lead on a more commercial source that I'll go talk to tomorrow. I guess sandblasting is like welding, you've got to get your supplies from a commercial oriented shop and not from the wanna be D.I.Y. stores like Lowes and Home Depot.
