I recently bought one of the CHEAP blasters that Jim said not to buy. Didn't see his post until it was too late.

Question: what if anything are others using as a flash rust preventive? All the stuff I've looked at is grossly expensive. The Dustless Blasting stuff is $225 for 5 gals.

I don't want to gold plate it, I just want to keep the rust off for a couple of days. Located near Houston TX so humidity is high.

Comments, suggestions.

I did one of my skidloaders dry blast and then went over it right away with a thin primer coat. --- With wet blast, as soon as it dried off you should be able to primer it I would think.
Here in central IL. it's humid during the summer so I only try to do paint work early in the spring.

I have a bunch of lawn furniture, garden crap, etc that I have to clean up for my wife. Strip it, store it for a few days and paint it. With my luck it will be fourteen colors.

Maybe I should load it, sell it for scrap, and say it was stolen.

Thanks for your reply.

It's humid here too I use a leaf blower to dry it off as fast as possible. I use primer that's designed for rusty material. only slightly more expensive BUT it been working good so far.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

I have been trolling the net on a usable material for flash rust preventive. Too much stuff is just BS, grossly expensive, or requires to much prep when you are ready to paint.

I've used Ospho in the past, but had disappointing results requiring a second clean up that was almost as much work as the original cleaning. Have to look at my application of the Ospho. It's likely I screwed that up as I subscribe to the " if some is good ******too much **** etc".

Has to be a relatively cheap easy way to do this, just need to cut thru the cloud of advertising BS that surrounds products that have a very high markup.

I like the leaf blower idea and will try it. Recently I replaced the NiCds for my Ryobi with Lithium, made my small leaf blower actually useful. Should work well as a parts dryer.

Thanks for the comments
