I'm in the process of restoring a USMC M38A1 and have a few small pieces I would like to sandblast.

Does anyone have access to a sandblaster or recommend a decent priced shop. None of the rental places around me have any I can use and the few places that will sandblast my parts want more money than I can afford.

I can buy the media if anyone is willing to give me some time on one.

what size are the parts, and when do you need them done? I have portable you could borrow here shortly it works really well and isnt like anything you can buy local....works off low pressure.

Nothing large, seat frames, various latches and cover plates, bolts and screws. I'm wire wheeling all the large parts (fenders, hood, tub) but I'm having a heck of a time with small stuff.

Edit: my timeline is wide open. If someone is doing me a favor, I'm going to work on their schedule.

I have access to a compressor - It's not mine so I don't have the specs. I think it tops out at 120psi, so it should work fine.
