    Sandblasting Pricing?

    So my contractor friend surprised me today by dropping off a food-grade drum at my office! Only used once, the label says it once carried organic grape juice. It's in excellent condition, very few dents and very little rust with a tight-fitting head. And free! Can't ask for any better. It does have the sprayed-on red interior so I figure I'll have it sandblasted before I proceed with the build.

    To that end, anyone have any advice about sandblasting? I figure I'll call around but hoping to get a general sense of what others have paid so I can recognize a fair price. Any thoughts or advice?

    Much obliged, Spark. I may have found a guy who will do inside and out for $40, we'll see what's what. Pays to be friendly with the help at Orchard Supply.
