One concern with sandblasting lead-containing paints is that the powder will be sent throughout the neighborhood. Most of my clients will not risk sandblasting old houses painted before 1978 although I have waterblasted off peeling paint without any complaints. Generally, scraping with a liquid lubricant seems to be the only non-polluting way to get lead paint off safely. There are vacuums for catching sand blasting as it is applied but it seems risky.

We use full SSPC Guide 6, 1A containment for blasting lead-containing paints.
