I've also heard of a process called 'Vapour blasting'. Similar to sand blasting but apparently acheives a polished finish, although I believe it leaves the surface porous so has to be lacquered before it can be handled. (I was enquiring about it for cast aluminium though, so I don't know whether the same would apply for SS)
I don't have an attitude, I have a personality you can't handle.

We had a mob in to do some cryo-genic blasting, very impressive, they use chipped solid carbon dioxide then wazz it through a blasting gun alegedly at supersonic speed. Very noisy but did bring our flavour drum up a treat. Not cheap either.

New boat is here, very happy!
