    media blast material and size?

    What blast media and size is generally used to strip paint and clean any brazing residue prior to painting and/or powder coating? What is the typical nozzle size for blasting bike frames?

    thanks, Brian

    Posted this same question on BikeForum, surprised no one has info on hand. A friend gave me a large blasting cabinet, already have a compressor that meets requirements for blasting. Just looking for a recommendation from someone experienced with bike frames, if not I'll use alum/ox 80-100 grit, this ain't rocket science.

    There's a sh#tload of basic info on blasting here:
