    So, I don't have access to a sandblaster, and thought I could use a vibratory case cleaner to produce a matte finish on small stainless steel parts. Has anyone tried this, and if so, what sort of media can I use? I want to produce a finish that resembles a blasting with aluminum oxide, and I don't want to change the dimensions of the parts to any significant extent. Thanks.

    Thanks, that is the sort of media I suspect will work. I'll have to give it a try!
