Jim Deardorff of Classic Blast is well known around Chillicothe for being able to remove paint from even the thinnest, most delicate metals without warping or damaging. Jim uses a system he developed himself which combines various types of abrasive media into one Sanstorm blast tank, and blasting at low pressure. He’s made a name for himself by successfully cleaning classic cars, tractors, aircraft and other antique odds and ends that other blasters would inadvertently destroy.
As is the case with these Chillicothe High School lockers. A customer brought these to him saying that the lockers which the school was throwing away were all she had left of her high school years, which were some of the best of her life. Made of a very thin gauge metal, Jim had to blast at a very low 26 PSI!
Jim’s expertise and cleverly devised method is impressive, and affords him many jobs others just can’t be trusted with., and his tool of choice is the Sanstorm. With the Sanstorm you can blast with many types of abrasive and you have full control over media flow and pressure. We’ve been manufacturing blasters for over 70 years, and we’re still the only manufacturer to offer a lifetime warranty on blast tanks.
