Sand Blasting Service for North Devon & Exmoor Area

Our craftsmen who have sand blasted signs for many years were so often asked to blast other items, that we have decided to add the service onto our web-site.  We can blast clean anything, from bike parts to garden chairs and bread oven doors to old tractors!

Builders often bring in new oak beams to sand blast them adding a bit of age.  We also sand blast timber to create for a driftwood effect. 

We have a number of mediums depending on the finish required. 

Costs  - £45 per hour plus cost of the abrasive medium

Abrasive medium - 34p per kg.

We use a number of different sands for sand blasting different materials. A metal garden chair takes on average about 9 minutes and uses 12.5kg abrasive. Cost £11.50 plus VAT

Smaller objects can be blast cleaned in the cabinet using a recyclable abrasive - £50 per hour - no extra charge for abrasive.
An object such as a wheel rim takes about 15 minutes to blast clean.

Prices exclude VAT

Sand Blasting Petrol Pump Before Sand Blasting After Sand Blasting

Our sand-blasters are often asked to sand blast quite intricate objects. This is something they are well qualified for, as they are used to sand blasting small lettering on the stone signs.

This was a more unusual project - we were asked to sand blast vintage petrol pumps ready for restoration. See the before and after photos above. The main frames took about an hour plus ten minutes each for the panels.

The large model car to the right took quite an unusually long time to sand blast due to all the small parts.
