Damn

I usually pay no more then 100.00 for a D110 frame blasted. That is steep. 900.00 The cost for me is transportation for all the processes ant time associated. A good blaster should barely need an hour for that type frame. If it is a small scale blaster operation then they will have a lot more time wrapped up doing it. Find a trailer repair buisness, 18 wheeler type. They usually do blasting cheap.

This ain't Kansas Dorothy. Nothing is cheap out east! What does a hotel room cost out there as a point of comparison?

I have a friend with a sand blaster so it'll just cost me media and my time. Galvy cost should be comparable to Jim, but I'll also get to galvy a bunch of other stuff at the same time making it pretty affordable relatively speaking.

It costs me more in media to blast it myself. Shop around.

I've used two blasters out here. One was expensive because he was an asshole, one is expensive because they have a big ass facility to pay for with all the sand recapture, filtration, and disposal costs etc. 900 for a frame is competitive here, and I was happy because the place actually quoted a price up front and stuck to it.

I can tell you that there is no fancy recapture method out here. Metal room and a bobcat to pick up the sand and pour it back in.

Even the soda blasting type places here are a quarter the cost you are quoting. Wonder if it has become an enviromental issue, or percieved.

We do have good access to sand as well. Could be an issue.

Maybe you guys should look down by the river?

I agree nothing is cheap out East. LR dealer labor cost is I believe $110-130 per hour. Private LR specialist is $99.00

Also, motel room 3 hour about $30.00 to $60.00

Blast Master in Clifton - quality job and good turn-around. Avoid "Roger's Sandblasting" at all costs.

What are your getting a hotel room for three hours for?

This where the sandblaster takes you to present the bill?

Yeah, and he has to reflect that cost in the price of the job.

Ok, let me just confirm it with the boss and I'll let you know. Later is better for me so I can dodge traffic (although I'd like good light when I get there).

Thanks a lot,
charles

BTW

Here in MD , I had my M416 with 40 years of rust and 1,000,000 coats of paint ) soda blasted ( Frame, Box, Wheels ) for 500.00 pesos.

they did an awesome job.

Out of curiosity ( as when I re-did my 109 , I have spent many many days sanding ) asked what would be the price to blast the entire 90, and he said" If you bring the body shell and the frame apart 650.00, so maybe just a frame would be no more than 250.00 ( of course I am guessing )
