Default Craigslist tool score

I've been wanting a blasting cabinet for some time, but didn't have enough need to justify one, didn't want to buy a cheap one, and hadn't found time to research plans to build one.

Looking on Craigslist last night at 9:30, saw that someone had posted one for sale that looked pretty good. The post was placed at 9:02. I immediately e-mailed the guy and said I was interested.

I got a call this morning at 9:00am from the guy telling me that he'd received 30 e-mails and that I was at the top of the list. I drove over right then and picked up this unit for $35 .. score !!! This was way more than I'd hoped for. It's a "Skat Blast" Cabinet in almost new shape. The glass is almost completely clear and all of the parts came with it, including the manual

anyone have media recommendations for removing mill scale from hot-rolled?

What IS the word I'm looking for here?????????????? Oh yeah, that's it ---YOU SUCK! You didn't get a good deal, you got a great deal. As for media recommendations, maybe you could use the seeds from all the raspberries you are going to receive from this post.
