Just  looking  for  advice  on  a  Purchase  air  abrasion,  what  to  get,  a local  shop  machine  mart,  have  several  different  types...!

I  have  a  Budget  of  About  £150

Hi, I take it you mean an air abrador unit. The following link is the entry level prepping unit that I have - remember these are made specifically for fossil prep, ones you get from 'tool shops' are not!

Bob, KM does a similar double unit, you could also look on ebay etc., but 2nd hand ones don't come up very often. They are a UC company and do have a website. Remember to factor in the price of blasting media, an extraction unit etc as well!

I don't think he is, I can't remember who it was now but a few months ago most of his non pen stock was sold of and he is only doing pens now. I have the AE Aubin 501 ABFR and in my last reply to you I meant to say "USA" not "UC"!!!
I do apologise for the wrong info (I put it down to old age)!
