No I don't tape off the cases.  After I bead blast the caes I put it back in the hot tank, then use the air hose on it.  Rinse the case again, then chase all the Holes.  Rinse and blow dry you will know when its clean and free of beads.  I have been bead blasting case for 12 years with out a problem,  it does take more time but well worth it.   :-$

Local machine shop guy I asked about this Tuesday says that his hot tank will hork up aluminum?  He says it will turn aluminum black and if you leave it in there very long it will really hork it up!  :-k


Wow That guy most use some crazy chemicals O:) .  As barry said The hot tank we use has hot water and a soup that sprays out of jets.  I still rinse all parts after there done with the garden hose.  I have let parts in there and the soup dryed on and let a coating behind.

You have to use the NON Caustic wash for Aluminum.
Most shops have a caustic wash for iron and non for aluminum.
