This is likely a soft wood door. I wonder how much damage a sand blaster would do to the wood. I suspect you would need to be very quick and accurate to avoid damaging and fraying the grain.


Barking-Pumpkin

If he spends too much time on the vertical pieces they could fray for sure and get hairy. Hairy Stiles, if you will.


NashDelirium

It shouldn’t be an issue as long as you only go left to right, or right to left. One direction.


freakyorange

This joke is going to be underappreciated.


ActualCarpenter

With wood you don't use sand. Probably a soda blaster? We've also blasted old beams with walnuts before.


dj_narwhal

What is a soda blaster? There was a post once on /r/powerwashingporn where someone used a blaster that he claimed shot crushed/powdered dry ice because it was less abrasive for delicate surfaces.


estesd

I work for a tier one automotive supplier making molded PU foam parts. We use an ice blaster just like this, if that's in fact what he's using. We use them to clean the molds every week. We'll use 400-500 lbs of dry ice a week, comes in these big double-walled coolers. They are indeed a lot gentler than traditional media or sand blasting, but they're louder than you can imagine. They can be blasting a mold at the rear of the plant and I can hear it at the other end in the engineering room.


greatlei69

I had the pleasure of using one of these (dry ice blasters) about a month ago. Had to wrap a glove around the handle because it gets colder than a Minnesota winter.


spider2k

Literally baking soda. You buy 40lb bags of arm and hammer baking soda. This doesn't look like soda blasting because that shit gets EVERYWHERE. After a few minutes the AIR tastes like toothpaste.


dansdata

Incidentally, dentists use little tiny soda blasters to clean teeth. The blasting medium is referred to as "dental sand", but it thankfully never contains any actual sand, just sodium bicarbonate or [glycine](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycine). :-)


AlohaKim

I suddenly want to be a dentist and this is the only reason.


BigPaul1e

I had a dentist ~20 years ago who used one of these and I LOVED it - it's WAY less uncomfortable that the tradition "scrape your teeth with metal hooks" method. Unfortunately he relocated out of state and none of the dentists I've been to since use a blaster.


Goodbye11035Karma

Sadly, they **can't** use that current method in the US at the moment due to the disease that need not be named. Aerosols are still a big old NO. I hate having metal tools scraping my teeth, so my last appointment was no fun whatsoever.

We use walnut shell at our motor shop to remove the paint from electric motors as well. It's really easy on the metal and not as dusty.


holliewood61

Could also be glass bead media. Doesn't look dusty enough to be sand or soda to me, but as always i could be wrong.

walnut shells

Dry ice, maybe?

Forgive my ignorance, if that's sandblasting wouldn't there be a little pile of sand accumulating at the bottom of the door?


IHateLooseJoints

There's 100 different products you can sandblast with. I've used glass bead, metal shaving, different types of sand, foam. Sometimes the material is so fine it ends up as light as the air on impact and blows away. I've also blasted with just air, just to dry a surface or remove loose paint. He's perhaps just using air. (Our compressors run at 20,000 PSI) This is 100% a sand blasting suit and apparatus though. Don't listen to the people saying it's not. Edit: I'm tempted to say he's using something fine like glass bead because I don't think I would personally full suit up for just air. Glass bead is invisible and gets all over you and the back-blast hurts like hell if you don't tape up your wrists properly. Source: I was an industrial blaster for 4 years.


BrickUpset889

This looks like dry ice cleaning


cd29

Yeah it's probably a dustless blasting method


JoeyZasaa

Good. I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.

Ok Anakin, you can fuck padme now.

There would be quite a bit of sand, yes. I’m not sure what this is, but it isn’t a sandblaster.

B8conB8conB8con

I can remember back in the 70’s my dad and I using scrapers and blow torches to clean layers of paint off the doors of our Victorian house. I’m sure it didn’t do me any harm.


shorty5windows

Hopefully you did the paint removal outside haha. I’m always horrified when I enter a Victorian or Craftsman style home and all the wood has been painted. It really bothers me.


B8conB8conB8con

Take them outside! We didn’t even take them off the hinges.


Stolen_Oyster

That’s my boy!


RookaSublime

We moved in to a Victorian house when I was starting high school. Spent literally my freshman, sophomore and junior year restoring all the beautiful woodwork, scrapping and sanding layer after layer of white paint. By my senior year we only had the massive staircase left to tackle, we finished it about a month before graduation. I moved out that summer, my parents moved into one of their smaller properties and rented the house. My mom said when she walked in and saw the tenants had painted everything white again she almost cried. Needless to say they did not get their deposit back.


hectichead22

I once striped back to plaster a room that had about 80yrs of wallpaper. The previous owner always pasted over the previous wallpaper. It's was a joy discovering the different designs on each layer at the same time feeling awful 4 destroying it. It was like an archaeological dig. The room I kid you not was about 1ft larger when I'd finished.


CrieDeCoeur

My first house was a century home. I wanted to leave all the wood trim original, even though the shellac was cracked, peeling, and turning orange. My gf wanted to paint almost everything out white. We fought over this for a few years until I agreed to do it to one room. It really did look better, and brighter, and larger. Not to mention the time, effort, money and sheer pain avoided from having to refinish miles of wood. Just personal taste of course but I had always thought it would ruin the look of the house to paint out all the trim. I was wrong.


shorty5windows

Definitely a difficult decision. Glad it turned great… otherwise you’d having been looking at twice the work.


lootedcorpse

I offered $30k over asking on a craftsman with untouched wood, and got outbid.


shorty5windows

Dang it! Hard to look at cracker box tract homes after seeing a beautiful craftsman house.

Don’t get me STARTED on skin. I mean really, who ever asked for skin? It’s such a nuisance.


Shadowsketch23

My dad has sandblasted since 2001 (did some in the 80s too). One time in the 2000's the hose twisted on him and he blasted his upper forearm (had accidentally left his long gloves somewhere and was using half length gloves) . It looked like raw hamburger and he scrubbed it out with a hand brush in our sink. At the doctor they said "we don't scrub these kind of wounds out anymore". Yearly he has had a few shards pop out randomly, or annoying enough to use tweezers.


UpUpDnDnLRLRBAstart

Oof. That made me light headed. Glad he’s ok now.


Gods_Guest

Valreesio

Funny story, and it happened on Thanksgiving the first year I was married. All the grandkids were hanging out with their spouses (queue me) and the older generation was working on dinner. Pop (his house and the oldest of the bunch) was sitting near us. One of my wife's cousins said, "hey, let's play poker" and I responded "poke her, hell I don't even know her". I started getting yelled at (by cousins and family) because apparently you don't talk that way around pop. Meanwhile, pop is laughing his ass off because he thinks I'm that funny. Family was/is very uptight about things like that. I had a good relationship with pop until the day he died. I made him laugh he said.

Grateful_Dad_707

BigBossWesker4

Sand blaster, it’s a pretty powerful and dangerous machine


grpagrati

I assume this needs quite a bit of experience not to damage the wood and create an uneven surface. Sand blasting is powerful


Wlcmtoflvrtwn

It damages the wood no matter what. If you closely inspect the wood after it will be very rough and textured with sprigs of wood coming off of it. Will take A LOT of normal sanding with paper to make it smooth again.


PlanarVet

Oh. Well. Pass then. I'd want to do this to avoid sanding in the first place.


Wlcmtoflvrtwn

If you want to avoid sanding just use a paint stripping chemical. They work well too and no sanding afterwards.


Analraptor666

You should still sand with a slightly finer grit after stripping the wood as the moisture of the initial paint / solvent will pull grains. Not nearly as bad a sandblasting though.


ClassicRepeater

Don’t pull my grains. Anal raptor comin in spittin the facts


iztrollkanger

Took me a second to realize you were talking about their username...I was *very* confused for that second.


Whiterabbit--

always use chemical stripping if you are not sure if the paint contains lead. sandblasting, sanding or scraping will get lead dust everywhere.


IHateLooseJoints

Typically when you sandblast you want it to have that sort of profile for the paint application, that's the best part about blasting. There's 100 different products you can blast with to create different profiles. He could be using a soft material like glass bead l or as someone else said walnut. You're right though, blasting wood or an old brick structure can be disastrous if you don't know what you're doing. A skilled blaster makes a world of difference. Source: Was an industrial blaster.


metaldood19

So anyway, you started blasting


akaghi

Would you say you were a... Master blaster?


IHateLooseJoints

Idk if I was a master blaster but I definitely wasn't a disaster blaster.


Yesica-Haircut

Just blast it again with finer sand!


gungorthewhite

It's sand all the way down!


Infinite-Gravitas

I heard they use walnut shells or medium with lower hardness for stripping paint from cars. Maybe that works here.


jereman75

I worked on a house where someone sandblasted a few doors. They were an absolute mess. No way to sand out the gouges. Bummer too, it was an early 20th C hacienda with the original doors.


BananaDogBed

For wood you can use walnut shells or other custom media for the job - silica sand, aluminum oxide, glass bead, and corn cob grit. You can adjust the power by adjusting the PSI (and i’m pretty sure, at least on nicer ones, you can adjust the ratio of the media to air) Bonus fun fact: You can also go the other way and do something called “Shot Peening” where it’s like sandblasting with solid metal marbles. The purpose is to strengthen the piece of metal by smashing it over and over again over the entire surface. https://i.imgur.com/vEdNFh0.jpg


----0000000-------

I don’t get it. Why is there no paint dust on the floor? Where does it go?


Jaksmack

It's blowing away so fast you don't see it.. look how hard his pant legs are blowing around.


MarlinMr

I am sure you could see some IRL, but here we are dealing with a camera and compression too.


HaulinBoats

You can see some on the floor that gets blown away but this video is also slightly sped up as well


behaaki

And it’s a posi-pressure suit! Man is geared up


Jaksmack

Probably really bad to breath in that "particalized" paint..


zwinkie

The sand is actually just as bad. It contains silicone which when inhaled can lead to silicosis which makes it impossible for you lungs to absorb oxygen. Silica***


BrokenByReddit

Silica, not silicone. Silica basically *is* sand.


IHateLooseJoints

Silica*


Iphotoshopincats

Sand and dust are very much just as dangerous in aerosol form as paint ... Well paint I guess you have a lead risk of old enough


OrkfaellerX

I'm not convinced yet I'm not watching a reversed video of someone with an airbrush.


ratsta

That suit is the *real* benefit to using a sand blaster. You get to dress like MC Hammer!


freeradicalx

It's atmospheric pollution now, don't worry about it.


badger906

Probably not using sand though, far to course for wood. Maybe walnut shells!


dtyus

Can this be used on stupid drywalls someone used wallpaper and some areas painted overwallpaper?


stuartgatzo

They sometimes use pulverized pecan and walnut shells instead of sand. Nut blastin’


Grateful_Dad_707

Ha! That'd be a hella terrible way to find out you had a nut allergy.


PeterGazinya

They also use CO2 so there would be not abrasive residue. Just paint and wood dust.


Wicked_Wonderzz

On the contrary, you typically need full PPE gear including a respirator when using this to prevent literal glass powder from entering your lungs, eyes, and getting on your skin. Plus the whole set up is significantly more expensive to run.


Grateful_Dad_707

Thanks for crushing my dreams lol


DefNotAK

Its not that expensive, especially if you already have a good big compressor, dont let your dreams be crushed


sapere-aude088

It's not that bad, don't worry


SeasonPositive6771

Plus it looks like this guy might just be blowing leaded paint all over the neighborhood. Maybe not so great.


basaltgranite

Yep. Toxicity aside, lead is a *terrific* white pigment. Given the likely age of the door, you can be almost certain that a white enamel paint like this has *a lot* of lead in it. The old-school painters judged paint quality by weight. Let's hope no one ever grows vegetables anywhere nearby.

Put some clear varnish on that door now and leave it without the paint. Beautiful lookin wood right there.


thnk_more

Unfortunately that wood is frayed and uneven now (summer rings vs winter rings are not the same hardness) . A good bit of sanding though and it should be in nice shape (except for the sharp edges of the molding, those are likely rounded over)


wooshock

Yeah power washing and sand blasting aren't the last step... Gotta sand, wash (with tsp or mineral spirits), and then you'd do a coat of polyurethane, sand again, wipe off with a clean cloth, polyurethane, sand again, wipe off, polyurethane. But the results will be beautiful. Wood like this absolutely *glows* after a few simple steps.


Dio-lated1

I want one.


RearEchelon

Wonderful-Reward3828

As a sandblaster by profession, I’m curious as to what abrasive he is blasting with


ActualCarpenter

I think it's soda. We've used walnut for larger beams but cabinet doors etc. it's soda.


Ivy_Thornsplitter

Coke, Pepsi, the doctor? Which one?


ActualCarpenter

The baking soda kind. Why are you talking about pop?


longislandtoolshed

I see he's wearing a safety suit that appears to be puffed up with air, what's that all about?


Wonderful-Reward3828

It’s probably puffed up from that hood that he’s wearing where air is blowing into the collar of it. From what I understand thy puff up because when they balloon out it makes it to where ricochet won’t effect you. Also you want to tuck the bib of that hood into there that way you create a complete seal so that your not breathing any of that stuff in.

theinsanepotato

Shouldn't this be done in an enclosed space so the used sand and stripped paint isn't just getting blasted out into the ecosystem? Like I'm pretty sure you're supposed to have special booths for these in most places. I could be wrong but it just seems like a really bad idea to have an that used sand and material just flying off into the environment and not being captured somehow.


climbon321

That's all I could think about and it made the video stressful instead of satisfying


Toff_Nutter

I'm right on your side. I don't think paint should get into nature.


quadmasta

This is most likely dry ice, not other media. As long as it's not lead paint, it's inert.


throwaway_0122

You can sand blast with dry ice?!


6C6F6C636174

Tiny ice crystals that evaporate. No worries about them getting embedded in the wood.


quadmasta

Yeah. It's *huge* in restoration, especially in automotive


thatgoddamnedcyclist

If true, that takes care of the sand part, not the paint part. If modern (-ish) paint, that's microplastics right there.


appliancefreak

So anyways , i started blasting


MrPlow_357

What is the device that person is using? I've used heat guns and pressure washers to remove paint but they don't work like this.
