Hi Jeff and Robert,

You might want to contact:

Vapor Blast
3025 W. Atkinson Ave.
Milwaukee, WI 53209
Phone: 414-871-6500
Fax: 414-871-7683

They sell both wet and dry blasting equipment. As far as media goes... we prefer very fine crushed glass. Most of it is recycled and it is very affordable.
If you go the wet route, just make sure your resins are not effected by the water / solution.

Dear Rp'ers
        I need to collect some info on bead blasters used for finishing SLA
parts. Could folks give recommendations on equipment being used as well as
type of media used. Also if there are any special considerations needed to
account for once we own a bead blaster. We are currently using Ciba 5170
resin. Thank you in advance for all comments.
