Sand Blasting in the cabinet

 Sand Blasting Service for North Devon and Exmoor Area
Our craftsmen who have sand blasted signs for many years were so often asked to blast other items that we have decided to add the service onto our web-site.  We can blast clean anything from bread oven doors to old tractors!

Builders often bring in new oak beams to sand blast them adding a bit of age.  We also sand blast timber to create for a driftwood effect. 

We have a number of mediums depending on the finish required. Most of the blasting is done on site, but we can travel if required. It is amazing how an old fireplace or wall can look after it has been sand blasted.

Costs  - £35 per hour plus cost of the abrasive medium

Abrasive medium
£2.60 per 10kg. We use a number of different sands for sand blasting different materials. eg wood, stone, brick or metal.

Smaller objects can be blast cleaned in the cabinet using a recyclable abrasive @ a cost of £37 per hour.
An object such as a wheel rim takes about 15 minutes to blast clean.

For work away from site there is a one-off call out charge of £40
Prices exclude VAT    More sand blasting images and times

Sand Blasting Petrol Pump Before Sand Blasting After Sand Blasting

Our guys are often asked to sand blast quite intricate objects. This is something they are well qualified for, as they are used to sand blasting small lettering on the stone signs.

This was a more unusual project - we were asked to sand blast vintage petrol pumps ready for restoration. See the before and after photos above. The main frames took about an hour plus ten minutes each for the panels.
