Re: How do I sand my Frame??? HELP!!!!
The grinder is too aggressive. You may end up removing more material than you should, weakening the frame. If you do use the grinder, use a soft wheel, and don't use too aggressive of a grit. A hard wheel can destroy your frame faster then you can imagine. You might consider checking into prices on compressor rental for a sandblaster, or just taking the frame to a place that does sandblasting. I usually only use the old angle grinder for weld cleanup and that type of thing. I got my sandblaster at harbor freight for $30. If you know someone who has a compressor you can use, this is the best route. Sand is usually around $5 a bag at your local building supply. I have even seen cheaper sandblasters that aren't much more than a gun and a hose you put into a bucket of sand. I have cleaned quite a bit of structural steel and frames, and the sand blaster is the way to go. Let me know how the hammerite works, I am planning on using it on my own frame.
