Soda blasting cases

With all the modifications done to the cases, it is time to clean them up.   The Harbor Freight soda blaster works surprising well.

Soaking in hot, Dawn filled water to get rid of all the baking soda:

Well I thought soaking them for a while and then using the handheld sink sprayer would have dissolved/removed all the baking soda.  But after speed drying the cases in the oven, I was wrong.  There was still baking soda in some of the blind bolt holes.

So back to the utility sink. This time I bought a tooth pick and poked it around in all the bolt holes while spraying it with the handheld sprayer.  Speed drying in the oven again and finally the cases are clean.
