I ordered a needle scaler from Northern Tool and it arrived today. Of course I had to give it a try. I have too much going on today to give it a real work out. I did about a 8 inch square area on the rear end of my 9N project. It realy makes the paint fly. It is a lot faster than a cup wire wheel on the right angle grinder but does not leave as smooth of a surface. I would not recomend it for sheet metal surfaces. I think a fast going over with the cup wire wheel will rectify that. It is not near so messy either. The dust from the wire wheel settles on everything in the shop. The paint chips do not stay air born.
The water line to my Toy box is still frozen so I brought the rear end up to the house to try the pressure washer sand blaster. I forgot to sift the sand first. I would kick myself for that, but my 65 year old knees will not bend enough to do it. A stone about 1/4 inch plugged the nozel on the wand and the water backed up the sand siphon hose. That plugged it real good and I gave up, realy POed at myself.

We used needle guns on ships for year and they work graet. Just don't use it on the sheet metal! You will have dimples.

Jim what ships were you on. I'm 20 year navy most in the engineering space and shipyards. I agree with you about needle guns. They will pit anything but plate and even there can be a problem if the rust scale is heavy.
