I finally brought home the one tool I've been after for years but could never justify the expense of...A pressurized sandblaster! I have 2 of the siphon varieties so...anyhow, I get the new one home and all put together and I start sandblasting. If you forget to tighten the clamp that holds the abrasive hose on, you can sandblast for about 10 minutes before it lets go and begins to dispense the remainder of the abrasive onto the floor...and the wall, and the lawn mower, and the rafters, and the whatever else is in the area. In the 5 seconds that it took me to realize what was going on and shut the valve, it emptied about 10 pounds of black diamond onto the garage floor.

Uh-oh, that is a mess! We've all been there... forget to tighten something, or forget to put a cap on, or whatever else!

CASEGUY, There's a lot of "Nooks & Crannies" in that garage to fill. You'll be finding Black Diamond for YEARS. LMBO when you told me that.
