This is an Air Eraser from Harbor Freight tools - It's a mini-sandblaster and looks a lot like one made by Paasche.

Perhaps it would be handy for removing material from hard baits or cleaning up lures for repainting.

It may be good for removing the paint from gill grooves and scales etc. But for general paint removal, I think the spray area would be too small.
It might be useful for carving resin blanks. Then make a mold of the carved blank. If you mess up, or are not happy, you start again with a fresh resin blank, rather than a block of wood.
I often cast my carvings before completion, so that I can try alternative endings.
