Needle Scaler Blasts Off Rust and Paint
This air tool may look like a sea monster with tentacles. But the tentacles are actually nineteen 1/8-in. needles that hammer off rust, scale and dirt at 4,600 blows per minute. Move the adjustment collar forward or backward to vary the needle force and coverage area. Use it to knock rust and old paint off your car, wheelbarrow or other metal object. You'll still have to deal with the pits from the corrosion, but at least the flakes will be gone. Wear hearing and eye protection and leather gloves, because this baby kicks up a lot of dust and debris, and it's loud.
The scaler comes with a set of needles and a chisel attachment. Replacement needles are available for about $15 a set. Find the Chicago Pneumatic CP7120 Needle Scaler at amazon.com or a local air tool supplier.
