Can I earn eleventy billion dollars per jiffy wielding a dry ice blaster?

Neither of those are actual units, so maybe?

I took a break from Aging Wheels, which I am watching in reverse order, so it is kind of nice to watch Captain Bob get younger and younger, but also worse and worse.

YouTube recommended an interesting Donut Media video... and then another 5-10. They had a cool video where they tried different methods to remove rust, culminating in a freaking laser! This didn't have a freaking laser, so that was disappointing, but it shot dry ice media at various parts of an engine bay and removed grease, rust, and everything else offensive without damaging anything or wearing down the material: Sorry for the reaction faces.

No[t if]. eleventy isn't a word. Did you mean brazillion?

It sounds great sandblasting without the sand. It's coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere.

Why can't eleventy be a word? Wikipedia defines it as 110

I've used dry ice blasting to clean dies still in the press. WAY quicker than removing the die, sending it to the tool shop, having them bead blast the die, then completely tear down the die to clean all the residue out and then reassembly and lubricate, and then finally send it back production.

Was the C02 in blocks or rice-sized grains?

Pellets like these but smaller. We scooped them out of a bin like this.

Is there any way to home-brew a setup? I don't think we should trust Xist with lasers.

You would trust me with a freeze ray? Would I need to wear a striped scarf and zipper jacket or goggles and an old surgical costume?

How many videos could I post dry-ice blasting 5 cars?!

I loved watching that! Was I the only one?!

No we don't trust you with a freeze gun either, it just can do less damage at closer range and has the tendency of attacking the operator done incorrectly.
