Yep it's cold here but not much snow this year. On the plus side I have found that sandblasting outside in the winter is better than the summer. You already have a coat and gloves on, and I don't sweat under the blasting hood. One thing I picked up for this project is a hand held blaster gun. It is called a Speed Blaster and it works great. It has a hopper on top of the gun- so it is a constant supply of media. It works much better than my siphon blaster. You can go a couple of minutes before it runs out but that's OK for me because that gives my compressor a chance to keep up.
