It is always very important to read our posts with the mind of where each writes and listens from.

Our forum is for all and includes jewelers and monolithic casters so ...

You could certainly save bucks by going to a car wash to blast off your investments IF

they were tiny casts

and IF they did not plug up his drain

and IF the investments were on very loose.... but those are not ones I was referring to.

Mine are often of the half to one ton size and would totally pollute the drain and leave a

mass too large to drive the next car over to either get in or out.

Also a 2500 PSI blast would remove paint from the car so we can assume there is a lesser type at the car wash.

I can put a 3 inch diameter hole in a 1/2 inch sheet of plywood with my water jet and it takes about 30 seconds to a minute to do it.

No this is not for daddy's Mercedes.

But thanks for reminding us to read between the lines and not just take what we all say for being the Gospel Truth. No Reader's Digest Here.
