The concept is sound. We were looking for a shop to dry-ice blast the body of a 66 Mustang that we're restoring and couldn't find any, so I can't comment on its effectiveness. We ended up just having it media blasted instead.
We use dry ice blasting constantly at work to rework rejected parts. We burn off powder coating in an oven then ice blast the ash residue to prepare for recoating. It is very clean, not as aggressive as the sales pitch says, leaves the metal vulnerable to rust due to condensation. Good machines are very expensive, and you need to have a good supply of dry ice, either a local supplier or spend even more on equipment to make your own ice. If you have specific questions shoot and I'll answer the best I can

Ok. Pretty much what I've been finding. I've talked to a rep from ColdJet a couple times and he's been very upfront about the capabilities and even directed me towards a less expensive machine. Still very expensive, but intriguing none the less. Trying to get some meetings with potential customers to gauge interest and then I may rent one to give it a shot. Thanks guys.
