Tractor Supply has a hand blaster like they used to sell at HF. A bag hanging under it for the media and it siphons up the media to send out through a rubber snout. Works pretty good with aluminum oxide or garnet fine grit. Uses a lot of air, but all blasters do. Wear respiratory protection when doing this!
