This is my first post. I'm so glad I found this forum. Such great information and inspiration. I'm about to start making my first UDS and have a question regarding sandblasting. I haven't read the whole thread yet (I cheated, by starting at page 600 or so), so hopefully my question hasn't been answered.
I see others mentioning that they've gotten theirs blasted for as little as $25. Where in the world are you finding these people? The cheapest quote I've gotten is $80. For that price, I can just about get a brand new drum. I've placed an add in Craigs List with no results. I've asked friends and no one knows anyone. Any suggestions?
If there is anyone in the Portland area reading this, and you know of someone that can do it for a decent price, please, please, let me know.
