So, I'm merrily bead blasting parts when the firing pin stop goes flying out of my fingers. Instead of the firing pin stop merely landing on top of the beads (heck it's a light weight part), it sinks like it's in quicksand! It looks like I'm going to have to drain the bead blaster now to find it. Argggggggh!

Have a great day!

Get a an extendable shop magnet. Your not the first. A magnetic bowl for inside the blast cabinet helps too....lol

I made SS screen baskets so the parts can be blasted in the basket and they do not fly out. A large screen strainer from your local grocery will work well also.

And when using the extendable magnet, the part will never be where you think you dropped it :D
