    Rezi: As a PS, you might want to look for a shop that will do what's called "glass bead blasting" (or "glass beading"), since that process is a bit gentler on the target material than sandblasting would be.

    If you have a powder coating company near you they will sand/grit blast then spray electrostatic powder coating onto the cage and bake it on. This gives a very tough coating and all the overspray powder can be sucked up and reused = good for environment.

    That would depend on local suppliers, you need to talk to them and see what they can offer. Also, compare costs with the price of new similar cages on ebay*

    *other online marketplaces are available

    You might be better off money-wise to look online for a second hand cage. There are some great buys.

    But check it for rust before you buy otherwise you are back to square one

    There are various mediums for blasting, originally it was mostly done with sand but recently firms have been using soda crystals and there was an article in the news a couple of days ago about a company using walnut shells. Unfortunately the dust in the air caused someone who was allergic to nuts to go into shock and it didn't end well.
