Media blasting (Fuchs) in Calgary or Vancouver

Hi there, Iím looking to get a set of Fuchs blasted to an RSR finish. Can anyone recommend a shop in Vancouver or preferably Calgary?

Thanks

Hmmm, interesting. I am a DIY kind of guy but I don’t know if I’d trust myself with such a task. I’ve never dabbled with blasting before.

I did mine last year, the blasting is not too difficult. Messy but not too technically challenging. I just used a bucket type blaster, gravity feed. A pressure fed would be even better, but you can make do with a cheapy pretty easily.

If you want to give it a shot without investment, I could loan you the equipment to do it.

Wow, thanks for the offer, thatís very generous. Iíve been in contact with Chris at ďSuper clean soda blastingĒ in Salmon Arm. Heís suggesting vapor blasting, a combination of ultra fine glass beads and vapor. He sent me a few pictures, the results look amazing. Iím heading to the Okanagan mid-January. If ever that falls through, Iíll let you know.

Alex

vapour blasting is definitely a fantastic finish. Hope to see pics when they are done!

Did you end up getting them done Alex? I did mine DIY - cheapo blaster from PRincess Auto using glass beads and they came out fine for me, so I bet the vapour blasting would be next level in perfect.
