    Beats a wire brush! I do hope it never makes it to Walmart though. Imagine that in the hands of an unhappy teen! :o

    If you have to ask, you can't afford it. The 50W version is about $53K ($53,000!), so the 1000W version in the video probably has an even more nosebleed-inducing price.

    I see some future possibilities in bridge work when repainting steel beams. The old paint is lead base from pre 75 ish. The painters go through a lot to contain the lead, and sand, during sand blasting the old paint off. Then they have to dispose of it.

    However this method would still involve containing the fumes from the paint burning. I would think a vacuum system with filtration would be a little easier than tarps making a containment under a bridge. Then retrieve the spent sand, and paint from tarps on the ground.

    I’d like to know maintenance costs for this. How long before things need replaced at what cost.....duty cycle also. I’m quite sure you just can’t pull the trigger, and run for long periods.
