Another excellent article! Love your line, "Jewelers do not work with sledge hammers and highway projects are not done with tablespoons." I also like the saying, "If the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail."

Great Article Peter. As a QC supervisor in a Blast and Coat Job shop I face this situation every day. You are spot on.I am posting this on our Informational Bulletin Board for all my applicators to read.

Good article and so true; afraid that many protective coating shops do not own "conventional guns" or employ operatives who know the simple procedure to set them up for each coating type.
