Does anyone know how well wet sandblasting attachments for a pressure washer work?

YES----- The wet sand blasting works well..I have a 2300# pressure washer , and bought a wet sand blasting acc. It is a pleasure to use, the water keeps the sand from bouncing back at you , and the water plus the sand really does a good job...It is not to be used on fine items, (it will eat them up)

Tell me more. Where are these wet sandblasting attachments to be found? How pricey are they?

The one that I am looking at is an accessory kit for a Simoniz S 1500 pressure washer that I bought at Canadian Tire. The kit includes the sand blaster and a couple of rotory brushes for $79.99.

I bought the wet sandblast att. at our walmart , and the price was around $15.00 (could have been a markdown)...Works like a charm on old cast iron...It will peel the finish off like you would not believe......

George, I have used one of the washers you bought, but was wondering how you liked yours? (Pros/cons)

Shaque, I haven't had it very long but it seems to work well. The book says that after long periods of storage you might have to take the front cover off and turn the motor by hand to loosen up the pump. I had to do this right out of the box. One of the things that I like about it is that it shuts off when you release the trigger. Even when its running it not excessively noisy. Overall I am quite satisfied with it.
