            bad link

            The Eastwood link to the conversion kit is broke.

            What I want to know it:

            What does the conversion consist of?

            Will soda blasting remove rust? No mention of rust removal in the Eastwood material

              I found and downloaded the instructions.

              What about cutting rust?

                  It doesn't remove rust, it is for paint and grime removal only. IT is a mild abrasive. It is not a cure all,
                  Here is the other thread with dry ice removal link
                  To remove rust to bare metal you will have to use some form of a more aggressive abrasive media.

                    Soda blasting can have issues with the painting process if not removed totally before painting.

                    Looks like the kit major difference is the purge hose to free a clog. If I find time I will try to throw together some parts for my pressure blaster to try. That find some time my be some time from now. ED

                      My little sandblaster loves to make water at the nozzle in humid weather. I can imagine the clogs trying to use baking soda. Don't commercial sized units (that work) have a refrigeration system to dry the air?
