Where do folks get their glass bead media? I'm looking for a 170 to 300 grit or so. A lot of sites just list as medium, fine, etc, and not in grit. Also, I'm finding that shipping for a 50 lb bag costs about as much as the bag itself.

Enco and Grainger are places I've ordered from. It is expensive, but a bucket will last a long time, especially if you recycle the material.

I get mine from a rock yard here in KC. They carry quite a few different blasting medias there
