I need to strip balcony grilles and would like to know if I could sand them myself? If it's feasible will it not come back too expensive knowing that I have to buy a high-performance compressor and a sandblasting kit (in addition to sand): how much can it cost?

To strip balcony grids, there are three methods:
- sanding,
- chemical or thermal pickling,
- sandblasting
Sandblasting is fast and very efficient, but the purchase of efficient equipment is expensive, especially if it is intended for a single use. The rental is surely preferable (the rental cost is a little over a hundred euros per day)
Another way is to deposit the grids (all depend on the completeness of the seal), and to sand them at a professional.
