    I saw a DIY on making a backing soda sandblaster using an air compressor and a flexible hose.
    Can't find the link.

    Since I need to remove a valve cover this is a good excuse to by an air compressor and clean off the backed on cosmoline. :)

    Look at the ScatBlast website for some interesting options. Probably also JCWhitney. Not sure if Baking Soda is strong enough---maybe there's somebody around there with a bead blast cabinet you can borrow the use of? Griot's Garage?

    I know you are just looking to make a siphon device to blast with soda, but I don't know that part. I know that our local Chinese Embassy [Harbor Freight] has really inexpensive sand blasters, too. Good luck, Terry

    I figured I could use the baking soda outside and not worry about it.

    I was going to hit Harbor Freight this weekend for some picks. I'll take a look.
    Thanks.

    Heh. I can envision a visit from the HOA Police if I were to start soda-blasting parts in the driveway...
