Laser rust removal

This look like the best rust remover I have ever seen. If you buy one ($53K) they will come, new found best friends. LOL

 Those are sweet. Way less mess than any type of media blasting. $53,000 is a bit of an investment.

Wow, very nice stuff.  Cleans steel, cast iron, concrete and bronze.  Maybe different set ups.  Very directional like sand/bead blasting.  Not as impressive on old paint removal.  Still very labor intensive.

It's fascinating just to sit there and watch the video.  I was like a kid in a candy store the first time I saw it.  Then I saw the price tag...  :(

I remember a sign in a specialty garage - "Speed cost money. How fast can you afford to go?" I guess the same approach applies everywhere.

And, yes I do pay attention to costs (most of the time).
I promise to be politically correct in all my posts to keep the BBBB from vociferating.
